We work hard as a team to make sure we give the very best legal advice to our clients, and it means a lot to us when these efforts have been recognised.”

Thursfields’ Director Shane Miller said: “We’re very proud of Laura and all our other lawyers who regularly feature in directories like Chambers and the Legal500.

We aim at being the best law firm possible, and we are delighted when this is acknowledged by the legal sector.”
