Long service awards for law firm staff





2020 was a very interesting year with limited good news, however this still hasn’t stopped us officially recognising our long serving staff for their dedication and commitment to the practice.

Sarah Mears, Michelle Poulton, Julie Peate, Tina Martin, Sam Azzopardi-Tudor and Fiona Mainwaring have all received long service awards from the Partners.

Partner and Head of HR Alison Carter said their loyal support has been invaluable in the years they have worked for the firm, especially during this pandemic which has seen all staff working differently. We want to express the gratitude of the partners for all their efforts.  We’re a very close-knit team and we believe it’s crucial to recognise the dedication of our staff, and all the work they put in to help ensure the practice runs smoothly and efficiently. It’s an honour to see many of our employees have long and settled careers with us.

Julie Peate received her award for 30 years’ service. Julie is the first member of staff at Martin Kaye to receive this award for this length of service. Julie started with us back in December 1989 when we had offices at Hazledine House.

Celebrating 25 years’ service is Tina Martin our Senior Receptionist and celebrating 20 years services we have Sam Azzopardi-Tudor our Office Manager, Fiona Mainwaring our Wills & Probate Department Manager, Sarah Mears who is a Chartered Legal Executive in our Personal Injury team and Michelle Poulton who is an Associate in our Private Property Team.

Martin-Kaye Solicitors began in 1985 with just three members of staff and in the decades that have followed, the independent practice has become one of the largest legal firms with offices in Telford, Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton.
