Roythornes is a top 150 national law firm with strategically located offices across the Midlands and East Anglia, and 2018 has already proved to be a successful year for the firm. Highlights include the appointment of 24 new members of staff – taking the total number of employees to 192 – several internal promotions and industry recognition including a listing on the London Stock Exchange Group’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’.

Alice said: “Emma and I both joined Roythornes almost 10 years ago and worked our way up from paralegals so it’s really great that we are taking this career step together. As a partner we will have much more responsibility and will help to manage the team and mentor more junior staff members, which is a challenge I think we both feel ready for.”

Emma added: “We work quite closely together in the agricultural property sector and it’s a really interesting part of the firm. We have some great clients who have really become more like friends over the years. I think the aspect of my promotion that I’m most looking forward to is the increased facetime with clients and continuing to build those relationships.”

Vember Mortlock, managing director at Roythornes Solicitors, said: “Alice, Emma, Iain and Kelly’s work ethics and commitment to the firm has been exemplary and I am delighted to announce their new positions in the firm. Their knowledge and talent has been invaluable when managing client activity and I have no doubt they will each fully utilise their outstanding skillsets in their new roles.

“These promotions mark a genuine milestone in the careers of each of those promoted and I join the team in wishing them well in the next stage in their respective careers.”
