Worcestershire-based Thursfields has named its latest partner.
Michelle Chamberlain, who specialises in employment law, has been with the firm for four years before receiving her latest promotion. She qualified as a solicitor in 1999 with national law firm Eversheds before moving to Thursfields in 2006 to develop the firm’s employment law practice.
She has brought in a number of significant local businesses to Thursfields, developing a successful in-house employment law training programme for employers, as well as writing extensively on employment matters.
Managing partner Nick O’Hara said: “Thursfields is rapidly changing and developing in new areas of expertise to ensure we meet our clients’ future needs. Michelle’s appointment reflects the Firm’s new direction and forward thinking approach.
“Her clients tell us they value her commercial and practical legal advice, which fits perfectly with Thursfields’ vision and ethos. She will also be responsible for leading the firm’s business development strategy and we have no doubt that with her wealth of experience and innovative ideas, Michelle will be an asset to the business.”
Ms Chamberlain said that she was delighted to be joining the partnership at Thursfields at a very exciting time for the firm.
