Three members of staff at Churchers have reached new milestones in their careers.
Emma Yemm from our Wills & Probate team and Dixie Mitchell from our Commercial Property team qualified as a CILEX Fellow after completing a range of assessments and submitting a portfolio of legal work.
Claire Bond from the Dispute Resolution team has been accredited as a personal injury specialist by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) demonstrating her expertise in the area.
These new accreditations will enhance their work at Churchers by guaranteeing quality and allowing them to practise new skills.
Emma and Dixie’s fellowship status allows them to oversee clients making legal oaths, while Claire’s accreditation as a specialist will be a mark of her expertise in making personal injury claims.
Managing Partner Andrew Bryan said he is extremely pleased with Emma, Dixie and Claire’s achievements and is looking forward to seeing them progress further.
Andrew added: “All of their achievements are very well deserved. They’ve put in a lot of hard work and dedication to earn these highly regarded accreditations.
“By having these new accreditations they can give their clients that extra bit of confidence in the support they offer.”
Emma said: “It feels like a massive achievement to finally be a Fellow because it has taken a long time and a lot of hard work. I now have more opportunities to further my career in the Churchers’ Wills & Probate department.”
Dixie said: “I’ve put in a lot of work to achieve my fellowship status and I was delighted to find out I’ve been accredited. It’s a huge step forward in my career.”
Claire said: “My new accreditation as a specialist in my area is a huge achievement for me. Personal injury claims can often cause a lot of stress, so my accreditation will give my clients that extra bit of confidence in the support I can give.”
