Claire French, Senior Associate in the Wills, Trusts & Probate team said:

“It’s lovely to be to be recognised with my promotion to Senior Associate. Working at EMG is fantastic. They genuinely have a wonderfully caring, supportive, driven and passionate culture and it’s great to be part of it. I really admire the forward-thinking approach of the firm, how they stay ahead of the curve in all aspects and the way they support and develop colleagues, so they can be their best. Their community involvement is also something to be admired, particularly their work through the EMG Charitable Fund and the WonderLAN Ball that raises well needed funds for the charity Headway.

It’s also the simple things too like working with like-minded colleagues who are enthusiastic and motivated about what they do. It’s been great to be part of the firm’s 10 year anniversary celebrations. Here’s to the next 10 years!”
