Thursfields named as finalist in Family Law Awards for second year running
Thursfields Solicitors has been shortlisted for a top award in the national Family Law Awards 2018.
The Family Law department is a finalist in the “Family Law Firm of the Year” category for the Midlands region for the second year running.
Shane Miller, head of Thursfields’ Family Law department, said: “We’re thrilled to have been named as finalists in the 2018 Family Law Awards.
It reflects great achievements at Thursfields which has increased turnover by 20 per cent in the last financial year, while the growing Family Law department achieved 23 per cent growth in the last financial year.”
The Family Law department has grown by more than a third in the last year, adding three new solicitors, a legal executive, a trainee and an apprentice.
The 2017 edition of the Legal 500 recommended the department as “one of the best legal practices in the area of family law”, with three of its solicitors also named as “next generation lawyers”.
Thursfields’ Family Law department is also actively involved in charity work, with the team last year working together to help to restore an unused garden area for residents at The Mary Stevens Hospice, in Stourbridge.
Shane added: “To have been shortlisted for the second consecutive year reinforces Thursfields’ Family Law department’s position as one of the leading advisers in the Worcestershire and West Midlands area, a success largely based on the team’s skilled and cohesive approach.”
The awards – sponsored by Lexis Nexis, the legal research and intelligence group – will be presented at a glittering ceremony following a black-tie dinner at The Ballroom, South Bank in London on 28 November.
The shortlisting comes just weeks after Thursfields Solicitors was named as a finalist in the Excellence in Learning and Development category of The Law Society’s Excellence Awards 2018.
