Midlands law firm Thursfields has announced senior promotions for seven of its top lawyers.
Lorna Tipple, Philip Rea and Stephen Rome have all been promoted to the position of director at the company.
Lorna initially trained at Thursfields 15 years ago and, after gaining experience at other firms and running her own practice, she returned to the company last year as an associate director in the Family Law department.
Divorce specialist Philip joined Thursfields’ Family Law department as a senior associate in 2018, while Stephen joined the company as a senior associate in the Dispute Resolution department in the same year.
Nick O’Hara, managing director at Thursfields, said: “I am very pleased to announce the promotions of Lorna, Philip and Stephen to the position of director.
“They have all made a great contribution to the business since they joined us and I am sure they will continue to do so.”
Thursfields has also announced the promotions of Louise Jones, Laura Williams, James Monk and Stewart Coles to the position of associate director.
Nick added: “The economy is going through the most challenging of times and to be able to announce the promotion of lawyers of this very high calibre in our business is a very positive message that we are sending to the market place.”
