Promotions and new appointments

FRANKLINS Solicitors LLP are delighted to formally announce the appointment of four new Associate Partners of the firm. Invitations for Partnership have been offered to and accepted by Holly Threlfall, a Solicitor in the Corporate Services team; Marie Bevan, a Chartered Legal Executive in the New Homes team; Emma McNally, Practice Manager; and Simon Bannister, Software and Development Manager.

“The promotion of Holly, Marie, Simon and Emma reflects the incredible hard work and effort that all these individuals have brought to the firm over their time with us,” said Managing Partner, Simon Long. “We are delighted that they have accepted the offer of Partnership with Franklins and look forward to the continued value that they will bring to the firm as partners.”

Holly joined Franklins in 2013 and quickly found her niche in corporate services. Acting for a wide range of clients, Holly strives to provide an excellent service beyond client expectations. From incorporation through to contracts, mergers and acquisitions Holly supports her clients throughout their business lifecycle. “I am delighted that, having trained Holly, she has succeeded in her ambition to become a Partner at the Firm,” said Andrea Smith, Partner and Head of Business Services.

As a Chartered Legal Executive, Marie has worked in residential conveyancing, including existing and new build properties, for many years. In conjunction with her new role as Associate Partner, Marie is one of the senior managers within the New Homes team.

Emma has worked at Franklins for 14 years and over that time has undertaken many roles for the firm, most recently having been appointed the firm’s Practice Manager. Along with her Associate Partner role, Emma manages the firm’s administration team, who have been instrumental in helping the firm prepare for and pass recent audits, thereby re-qualifying for both the ISO and Lexcel accreditation.

Simon joined Franklins after leaving college in 2003 and originally started in the accounts team. He has developed the firm’s office management systems as well as the website and CRM system.

In addition, the firm welcomes back Kathryn Thornewill, Associate Partner in the Private Client team. Kathryn has been away on maternity leave but has now returned to the Milton Keynes office and is excited about getting back to work.

Franklins has also welcomed Emily Carrington, a Solicitor in the Family Law team and Robyn Webb, Solicitor in the Corporate Services team.

Franklins would like to wish all the new Partners and new starters the very best in their new roles.
