Roythornes Strengthens Team with 13 Senior Promotions

Law firm Roythornes Solicitors has made a raft of senior promotions this month, with 13 team members taking on partner, senior associate, and associate roles.

In Spalding – where the company was founded in 1934 – Desley Sherwin and Rebecca Jackson have been promoted to partner, Talat Mahmood to senior associate, and Alex Murray and Robert Carter to associate level. The Alconbury office sees Alex Forster and Georgina Worley become a partner and Mary Sargent, Navroop Kaur and Joseph Stoehr all join the associate rank. In Peterborough, Kelly Eagers has been promoted to partner.

The Birmingham team, which is celebrating moving into a brand-new office on Newhall Street following two years of impressive growth and expansion across key sectors, has promoted Jessica Duck and Tasha Tabannor-Robinson to associate level.

Gillian Nash-Kennell, HR director at Roythornes, said: “We are delighted to announce our annual raft of senior promotions as recognising and rewarding the hard work of our staff is incredibly important to us.

“All 13 staff members have been, and continue to be, great assets to the team and this is reflected with their promotions – giving a boost to the Alconbury, Birmingham, Peterborough, and Spalding offices as well as their departments.”

Rebecca Jackson, who joined the firm as a paralegal in 2007, said: “I’m very pleased to have built such a fantastic career at Roythornes and would like to offer my congratulations to my fellow partners and team members on their promotions. Having joined as a paralegal, and now being partner, is a clear demonstration of how Roythornes nurtures talent and it’s great to see others progressing through the firm.”

The top 150 national law firm has five strategically located offices across the Midlands and East Anglia and adopts a one-team ethos. Working across a range of sectors – including agriculture, real estate, and food and drink – Roythornes’ team of recognised experts offer trusted advice to clients across the UK.

Each client also benefits from the company’s partner-led, practical approach. As well as a powerful breadth and depth of legal expertise, the team brings commercial know-how and invaluable lateral thinking to each case, drawing on a diverse range of skills and contacts.#

Vember Mortlock, managing director at Roythornes, added: “We firmly believe in providing a supportive environment for staff to thrive and pursue their passions – these promotions therefore not only recognise their hard work and dedication but also their excellent expertise in their field."

“We have some fantastic clients working on exciting projects, and we need the best people to help us succeed. Our promotions are a demonstration of our recognised expertise, and we’re continually searching for the right people to join our ambitious team."

“Our staff are our most valuable asset, so I’d like to join the rest of the company in wishing everyone well in the next stage in their respective careers.”
