Multiple senior promotions announced at Roythornes

Leading law firm Roythornes Solicitors has announced four internal senior promotions to support its ambitious plans for growth.

Alice Lees, Emma Hill and Iain Hibbert have each been promoted to partner with Kelly Eagers also making the step up to associate.

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 as paralegals so it’s really great that we are taking this career step together. I think we are both ready to take on the additional responsibility and challenges that come with being a partner at the firm and look forward to managing our own teams.” 

Emma added: “We work closely together in the agricultural property sector and we have some great clients. I think the aspect of my promotion that I’m most looking forward to is continuing to build those client 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.”
