Loyalty rewarded at Martin-Kaye

A Telford law firm has rewarded long-serving staff who have clocked up over a century of service to the company between them.

Six employees were honoured at Martin-Kaye Solicitors, at The Foundry, in Euston Way, for their dedication and loyalty to the firm.

In a special presentation to mark the milestone achievements, the staff each received gift vouchers and a bouquet of flowers from Managing Partner, Andrew Green.

The longest serving employee to be honoured was Shirley Farlow, from the Accounts Department, who has given 25 years’ service to the Practice.

Recognised for over 20 years’ service were Hazel Mears, from the Probate Department, and Sharon Powell, Administration Manager.

And celebrating 15 years’ service were Julie Peate, Assistant Administration Manager, Judith Smout, from the Wills and Probate Team, and Rita Webb, from the Family Team.

Andrew Green said: “Martin-Kaye Solicitors is very proud to recognise such dedicated staff, many of who have been with us since the Practice first began.

“Without the support of such a flexible and well-trained team, we would not have achieved a nationwide reputation for high quality customer service and effective, appropriate expert advice.

“A company is only as good as its workforce, and we are supremely fortunate to have the backing of employees who really care about the service we deliver.”

Andrew said the support of the long-serving members of staff had been particularly invaluable during a hectic past 12 months, when the company had transferred to purpose-built multi-million pound offices in Euston Way.

“Our company has undergone a period of total transformation, not just in terms of our premises, but also in terms of our operational approach, and the patience and hard work of our staff has played a crucial role in helping us to tackle each challenge as it arose.”
