North East Solicitor’s Legal 500 SuccessPosted: 25th October 2019

A NORTH East firm of solicitors is celebrating, after being singled out across a range of categories in the Legal 500.

The Legal 500 are the industry’s most prestigious rankings, judged on the high standards of service provided by solicitors.

And once again EMG Solicitors – which has a practice in Durham and has recently opened a Newcastle office – has been included, both as a company and with individual team members highlighted.

EMG Solicitors is listed in personal tax, trusts and probate category, one of the areas the company has build a nationwide reputation for.

At the same time managing director, Emma Gaudern, is acknowledged as a “leading individual”, while directors Samantha Edward and Jemma Morland have been listed as “next generation partners.”

The firm was praised for its “highly skilled” and “extremely responsive” attitude and its “approachable, friendly and professional” team.

Recognised for its skills in estate administration, Court of Protection work and its handling of complex capacity cases, the listings also mentioned ‘rising star’ associate Andrea Ingledew for her work.

Testimonials in support of EMG Solicitors praised the fact that the company offered “sound advice and puts customers at the front of everything it does” while displaying “knowledge which is second to none.”

The solicitors have also been listed as specialists in family law, with associate solicitor, Julia Middleton, singled out as a ‘rising star’ in the same category.

This is the fifth year that the company – set up in 2014 – have appeared in the listings, which uses extensive research and feedback from more than 300,000 clients to reach its results.

It takes into account the performance of the firm, the quality of the team members, their technical ability, their reputation and their future growth plans.

Managing Director, Emma Gaudern, said she was delighted that the company’s on-going commitment to growing the company and providing excellent service was recognised.

“It has been an extremely exciting year for EMG Solicitors which has included our expansion into a second office in Newcastle,” said Emma.

“And to have been singled out in both the family law and personal tax, trusts and probate sections as a company, along with praise for individual members of the team, is validation of what we strive to achieve.”
