Lawson-West Solicitors promotes long-standing team members to associates

A Leicester law firm has promoted two of its longest-serving members of staff in recognition of their commitment over the years.

Lawson-West, whose headquarters are at Meridian Business Park, has awarded litigation assistant Sarah Hickey and IT services manager John Kershaw associate status.

Sarah joined the firm in 1986 and has worked in a number of different roles over the past three decades. She now specialises in debt recovery, residential landlord possession proceedings and dispute resolution.

She said the promotion had empowered her to be “even more challenging and brave in my beliefs” in her role with the firm.

She added:

“For me personally it is acknowledgement and recognition, from the board, of my hard work, loyalty and commitment and is proof to others that you do not have to be a qualified solicitor or legal executive to achieve this.”

Meanwhile, John, who has worked in the IT industry for more than 50 years and who joined Lawson-West in 1998, said he was extremely proud to have been made an associate.

“For me, it shows that the hard work I’ve put in over the years has been acknowledged. It’s formal recognition from the firm for what I’ve done.”

John, who helps to maintain and enhance the security of the company’s IT networks, added:

“During my time at Lawson-West I’ve become very proud of delivering a high level of service and providing an accessible IT system for my colleagues.”

Lawson-West’s associate programme is always looking to celebrate the success of employees, explained managing director David Heys.

“Both Sarah and John have been with Lawson-West for many years and their promotion to associate is thoroughly deserved,” he said.

“They both have invaluable roles with the firm and always go above and beyond for clients and colleagues adapting to our circumstances and helping us grow. They embody all of the qualities we look for in associates and I am delighted with their success.”
