Family Lawyers, Glynis Wright & Co expands again and wins a hat trick of awards!
Glynis Wright & Co Family Solicitors and Mediators are one of the fastest growing family law firm in the Midlands, and covering Uppingham, Oakham and Melton Mowbray. Glynis set up the Leicester based company from scratch in 2011 as a sole business owner supported only by one part time Secretary. In just four years her business has expanded meteorically.
Glynis now employs 10 staff, 4 of whom are family lawyers specialising only in family law matters such as divorce, financial settlements, disputes over children and cohabitation breakups. The firm also offers a specialist family mediation service for those who wish to resolve their disputes through dialogue facilitated by a mediator.
Glynis’ latest recruit and her fourth family lawyer is Stephanie Kyriacou who joined the firm in August 2015.
Stephanie is a two year qualified lawyer and one of the most talented junior lawyers in the region. Stephanie had this to say about moving to Glynis Wright & Co:
I have a great respect for Glynis Wright as a family lawyer and mediator as well as a successful businesswoman and so I jumped at the opportunity to work with the best in the business. I also knew Glynis only employs the best family lawyers in the field and therefore knew that I would be joining a highly skilled family team where I could build on my lawyering skills and progress swiftly in my chosen field of law. I am really excited and honoured to be given the opportunity to join such a highly sought after firm and feel that my future is bright!
The practice has become one of the most popular legal firms of choice for family law matters in the region. Each of the divorce lawyers employed by the practice have their own client following having built their reputations in family law over years. It is Glynis’ view that one of the key reasons for the firm’s success is that it only takes on family law work which allows the firm to maintain a level of expertise second to none.
We asked Glynis if she was planning to expand into other areas of law and she replied:
I want to keep my firm absolutely niche. I have no wish to take on other areas of law as I feel that would dilute our quality of service delivery. We love the work that we do for our clients and the clients trust in the specialist input and guidance that they get from us. It is really important to them because they are often going through one of the most traumatic times of their lives and their lawyer is key to supporting them through this difficult time.
It is not just clients who appreciate Glynis Wright & Co. The firm has had a remarkable year and has taken first place in three legal and business awards. In April 2015, Glynis won Highly Commended Lawyer of the Year nationally in the Modern Claims Awards. In May 2015, the firm jointly won the prestigious accolade of Law Firm of the Year awarded by the Leicestershire Law Society and in September 2015, the firm was awarded Best Professional Services (sponsored by The Miller Partnership) in the celebrated Niche Business Awards of 2015 at the Athena in Leicester.
We asked Glynis to comment. She said:
When I first set up on my own, I had no intention to grow the firm. I was happy to stay small. But the firm proved so popular right from the outset that I had to grow the firm to match the work coming in, and then I had to grow it again and a bit more!
I had had no experience of running a business before and therefore the learning curve was swift and steep but definitely one of the best things that I have ever done! The fact that we have been recognised with three awards in this year alone from the legal and business sector whilst the firm is still in its infancy makes me feel tremendously proud.
We at Niche magazine wish Glynis and her team a fabulous 2016 and will be waiting to announce their forthcoming plans and achievements in the forthcoming year.
