Roythornes celebrates 355 years of service from 20 dedicated members of staff

LEADING law firm Roythornes Solicitors has recognised 20 members of staff who are celebrating a significant milestone with the firm, dedicating between ten and 30 years to the business - an incredible combined total of 355 years.

With top 150 status as a national law firm, Roythornes staff have been instrumental in the growth of the company since its infancy. To honour the 20 employees with a longstanding relationship with the firm, a lunch was organised at The George hotel in Stamford as a ‘thank you’ for staff celebrating milestones of 10,15, 20, 25 or 30 years. The staff were also invited to take part in a video discussing their time with the firm and giving advice to those starting a legal career. 

Jonathan Williams is a partner at Roythornes and has been with the firm for 30 years. He said: “In a firm as large as Roythornes, with such a depth of experience, knowledge and skills, I am delighted my contribution is being recognised.

“However, I don’t work in isolation. It’s always been good to know there is support and encouragement from others within the business and it’s been a pleasure working with colleagues to mentor, share ideas, or to secure a second opinion.”   

Vember Mortlock, managing director at Roythornes, said: “We are incredibly proud to have such long serving members of staff as it’s a real testament the firm and our values. Our staff are the number one priority and we work really hard to ensure that everyone from trainees to support staff to partners are happy and well-supported.

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone celebrating a special milestone – the firm has gone from strength to strength over the last few decades and it’s thanks to their hard work and dedication over the many years they’ve been with us.

“There are also many other long serving members of staff who are in between the various milestone anniversaries. Thanks, are extended to them too and we look forward to celebrating their milestones in future years.”

Roythornes has particular expertise in private client, agriculture, food and property sectors and has been listed, for the second year running, as one of the 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain by the London Stock Exchange. The firm was also named by The Lex 100 Survey as one of the top legal practices for trainee solicitors.

Roythornes are always on the lookout for big picture thinkers to join the team, with new vacancies regularly added to
