Emma joins an award-winning team

A solicitor who specialises in domestic property conveyancing has joined a Telford firm after being impressed by the team’s performance.

Emma Jones is the latest new face to join Martin-Kaye Solicitors in Euston Way, and she will deal with a wide variety of transactions involving leasehold and new build properties.

“Martin-Kaye is a well-established and well-respected law firm, and after working with the team on the other side of many property transactions in the past, I was keen to join them when an opportunity came up,” said Emma.

“My new role will include dealing with sales, purchases and re-mortgaging of residential properties, and in particular dealing with leasehold and new build transactions.

“After working in a busy firm in Birmingham City Centre, I’m looking forward to putting my experience to good use and to tackling the challenges that this new step brings.”

Emma graduated from Staffordshire University and qualified as a solicitor in 2015 after completing a training contract at another local Shropshire law firm.

“I’m delighted to have the chance to work with my new colleagues at Martin-Kaye – they have mastered the art of adapting to modern conveyancing without losing the traditional values of client care and customer service which can often be overlooked.”

Nita Patel who leads the property team said Emma’s experience made her an invaluable addition to the department.

“We’re always keen to work with ambitious and committed lawyers, and Emma fits that criteria very well.

“She has already settled in to our busy conveyancing department and we’re looking forward to seeing her working closely with new and existing clients to ensure they receive the very best customer service and support at all times.”

Jane joins the family team

Lawyers at a Telford legal firm have welcomed a new face to their growing family law team.

Jane Tinsley has joined the family department at Martin-Kaye Solicitors, in Euston Way, after a parental career break.

She had previously worked for many years at a large law firm in Shropshire and the wider Midlands, and she is delighted to be returning to the legal world.

“I specialise exclusively in family law, and have extensive experience in all areas of the sector including divorce, separation, resolution of finances, disputes concerning children, and cohabitation disputes and agreements.

“This is a great opportunity for me to join a forward-thinking and progressive law firm that has a good reputation for the high-quality advice it delivers, and I’m looking forward to working with such a close-knit team and helping clients to resolve the issues they are facing.

“I’m committed to resolving matters efficiently and amicably for clients, and I’m confident my experience will help me to find practical solutions that make a positive difference.”

Jane qualified as a legal executive in 1998 and as a solicitor in 2003, and her appointment makes her the latest addition to a family law team that’s constantly growing.

Gemma Himsworth, who is Martin-Kaye’s head of family law, said she was very pleased to welcome Jane to the firm, as her wide-ranging experience would be a real asset.

“We’re a growing team that has worked hard to develop the reputation we now have, and it’s always a pleasure to see new lawyers fitting in so well – Jane is already a valued member of our department.”

Martin-Kaye’s family law team are members of Resolution – a national organisation of family lawyers who are committed to non-confrontational divorce, separation, and other family problems.

“Our aim is to avoid court disputes wherever possible, particularly where children are involved, and we encourage a conciliatory approach so everyone can move forward with their lives,” said Mrs Himsworth.

Business tips on the agenda

Businesses in Staffordshire will get the chance to take part in an interactive employment advice seminar thanks to a leading Midlands law firm.

Experts from the Employment Law team from Martin-Kaye Solicitors, in Telford and Wolverhampton, are bringing their renowned Top Ten Employment Blunders seminar to The Moat House, at Acton Trussell, near Stafford.

The event will take place on Thursday, November 30th, at 12pm, and it’s the first time the team have hosted an event in the area.

Employment Law Specialist, John Mehtam, who will lead the presentation, said the idea of an event in this location was a direct result of customer demand.

“Our presentations have always proved extremely successful in Shropshire, Wales, and the West Midlands, and we’ve received an increasing number of requests from businesses in and around Stafford to bring our seminar to the area."

During the event, Mr Mehtam will share his advice to help businesses navigate through the increasingly-complicated minefield of employment law, and to help them avoid the most common pitfalls.

“We will include suggestions on how to tackle some of the most common workplace and HR issues including sickness absence, dismissals and poor employee performance – and perhaps more importantly, we will look at how to avoid these situations and protect your business.

“At Martin-Kaye, we’re committed to delivering effective and appropriate advice that really does make a difference to employers, and our short sharp seminars are designed to get right to the point.”

John said keeping up-to-date with ever-changing legislation was practically impossible for employers who were already battling with a packed schedule.

“That’s why our seminars are proving so popular right across the Midlands as we deliver clear, concise information in a time frame that suits our delegates.”

Businesses who would like to attend the seminar should contact June Noto on 01952 272222, or email
