From 01/10/2013 there will be some significant changes to our firm, although please rest reassured that this will cause no disruption to our existing clients, to any new clients or the way in which claims are managed. There are 4 main changes:
- Firstly, our current trainee Andrew Walker will qualify as a solicitor and has accepted a position with our firm where I am sure he will become a valued asset.
- Secondly, as many of you will already be aware Peter Foulkes, one of the firm’s founding partners is leaving after 39 years practising law. We wish him a long and happy retirement.
- Thirdly, the firm will become a Limited Liability Partnership [LLP] named Armstrong Foulkes LLP. This will have no effect on any on-going claims and it is simply a status change. Many professional organisations; lawyers, dentists and stock brokers, have taken this step.
- Finally, due to Peter Foulkes’ retirement there will be a change in the way the firm is organised and both my colleague Ashleigh Holt and I will become Partners in the new Armstrong Foulkes LLP along with the remaining founding partner, Hilton Armstrong. As Ashleigh and I have both trained at this firm we have always been very committed to it and are now proud to have the opportunity to play a part in its future growth and progression.
Should any of our clients, or prospective clients, have any questions or concerns about any of these changes please do not hesitate to contact myself or any other solicitor in the firm who would be happy to discuss matters with you.
This year marks 21 years in business and as we celebrate the firm “coming of age” we hope that you share in our excitement for the future of Armstrong Foulkes LLP.
