Torque Law continues to grow with new appointments

Torque Law, a specialist employment law firm based in York, is continuing to grow as it moves into expanded office space. They are also celebrating the arrival of several new hires.

Laura Gillhespy joins Torque Law as an associate solicitor, after 5 years at Pinsent Masons.

Emma Whiting, partner, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Laura, who adds to our exceptional bench-strength here at Torque Law. We owe our continued success to carefully appointing solicitors who can deliver superior quality whilst keeping our clients’ needs at the forefront – and we know Laura fits the bill.”

“Feeling you must choose between family and ambition is common in the legal industry”, Laura said. “As a mother of two young children, the progressive culture at Torque Law offers a more flexible opportunity to work collaboratively with amazing lawyers, without compromising my ambition or family commitments”.

Integral to Torque Law’s growth is its client roster and commitment to client service. In line with this, the firm has also appointed Emma Egerton-Jones, consultant, as client development lead. Emma, a former employment solicitor who has transitioned into a client experience professional, will dedicate her time to ensuring the firm continues shaping its services around its clients.

Tiggy Clifford, partner, commented: “We know periods of rapid growth can dilute quality. This appointment was a strategic decision to guard against that proactively, protect our dedication to quality and ensure we continue to develop our unique approach to client relationships as we continue to grow.”
