EMG Solicitors marks major milestone with senior promotions

A law firm says it has reiterated its “commitment to career progression at all levels” with a number of senior moves.

EMG Solicitors has promoted six staff.

Charlotte Greenwell is now an associate in the Court of Protection health and welfare team, with Mike Cattermole and Claire French promoted to associate and senior associate, respectively, in the wills, trusts and probate department.

All three are based at EMG’s Durham headquarters.

At the firm’s Gosforth office, Nicola Ife is now an associate in the Court of Protection property and affairs team, with Emma Etherington an associate in wills, trusts and probate.

And Daisy Hebblethwaite, in the company’s Darlington base, has been promoted to the role of associate in its family department.

The changes come as the firm celebrates its tenth anniversary, and Emma Gaudern, managing director and co-founder, says the company will never divert from its focus on employee wellbeing and progression.

She said: “Our people really do remain at the heart of the business.

“Helping our people thrive is a big part of our culture, not only in supporting our outstanding client service levels but ensuring we continue to be a great place to work.

“We have come a long way as a business in ten years, and that is solely down to our wonderful people.

“We are passionate about creating an environment where everyone can thrive and benefit from the great career opportunities we have available.”

Claire added: “Working at EMG is fantastic; it genuinely has a wonderfully caring, supportive, driven and passionate culture.

“I really admire the firm’s forward-thinking approach, how its stays ahead of the curve in all aspects and the way it supports and develops colleagues.”

EMG also has offices in Newcastle, Penrith and Manchester, and was recently named private client firm of the year 2024 at The Legal 500 Northern Powerhouse Awards.
