EMG Solicitors celebrates raft of promotions

Award-winning law firm EMG Solicitors is celebrating a raft of promotions.

Based at its Durham headquarters, Callum Robertson moves to associate in the residential conveyancing team.

Michael Costelloe is promoted to associate and Andrea Ingledew to senior associate in the Court of Protection (Property and Affairs) team. Matthew Sigsworth moves to senior associate in the Litigation team.

Having been with the business for several years, the promotions see the team advance from a range of former roles including legal executives, paralegals and associate solicitors.

Emma Gaudern, managing director, said: “Seeing our people develop and supporting them to do so remains a priority and we continue to build a culture and environment where everyone can thrive and benefit from the great career opportunities we have available.

“Providing a quality service for our clients is our number one aim and we achieve this by investing in, listening to and training our people so that they can reach their goals and ambitions.

“This is something that we support through our fantastic career development programme to proactively nurture talent across the business.

“I’d like to congratulate Callum, Michael, Andrea and Matthew for their hard work and dedication.

“These promotions are a huge credit to them, and their ongoing commitment and I wish them all the very best in their new roles.”

Matthew Sigsworth, senior associate in the litigation team said: “It’s been a great year for the litigation team as we continue to grow and I’m very proud to support them as their team leader.

“It’s also wonderful to have been recognised by the firm with my recent promotion to senior associate.

“It’s taken a lot of personal hard work to get there but is also reflective of the support I have received from the litigation and disputes team.

“Our success is a collective effort!

“I can honestly say that EMG is by some distance the best law firm I have worked for, a place I feel very much at home and where your efforts are truly recognised.

“We have a busy year ahead and I look forward to supporting the team further and working alongside our wonderful colleagues.”
