Award winning law firm EMG Solicitors, who have offices in Penrith, Durham, Darlington, Newcastle and Manchester, is celebrating the business’s strong growth alongside a number of key appointments.

This comes on the back of a period of expansion which has seen revenues increase in the last year by approximately 36% from £3.4 million to £4.6 million, with headcount now in excess of 138. It follows the launch of their Penrith office last September which continues to go from strength to strength.

The Cumbria division is led by Director and Head of Wills, Trusts & Probate, Samantha Edward. Alongside an experienced team of lawyers, it’s here that EMG provide a range of legal services including Court of Protection, Wills, trusts and probate, family, dispute resolution, residential conveyancing and commercial property.

The growth of the business can be credited to EMG’s ongoing commitment to delivering exceptional client service and investment in their people. With the recent expansion of the Commercial Property team supported by the appointment of Lynne McFaul as Senior Associate Solicitor.

Samantha Edward, Director and Head of Wills, Trusts & Probate said:

“I am delighted to welcome Lynne McFaul to the team in Penrith. With over 30 years’ experience in the field of commercial property, her appointment strengthens our team further and enhances the exceptional client service that we offer here at EMG Solicitors.

Lynne McFaul, Senior Associate Solicitor, Commercial Property Team said:

“It’s a great privilege to join the EMG team in Cumbria. I’m really impressed by the company’s values and genuine commitment to supporting their communities and the wellbeing of its employees. I’m enjoying working alongside the many fantastic colleagues here, supporting our clients and developing the business further in Penrith.”

EMG’s strong commitment to career development and growth, is also reflected by the many promotions and appointments across the business, alongside the opening of their recent Darlington and Manchester branches.

A large part of EMG’s success can also be attributed to the fantastic working environment they have created. Or as inspired by MD Emma Gaudern’s vision, a place of “joyful employment”!

It’s a principle that has helped them to attract and retain some of the best legal talent in the market and win several prestigious regional and national awards, including the nationally recognised UK Employer of the Year Award: Silver at The Investors in People (IiP) event 2022.
