Wilmslow Express - - LAUGHING BADGER -

APRIL marks a sig­nif­i­cant land­mark for Thor­n­ey­croft So­lic­i­tors man­ag­ing direc­tor Rachel Stow as it will be 20 years since she joined the firm as a newly qual­i­fied solic­i­tor.

Back in 1994 the firm em­ployed just eight peo­ple, but it has grown to be one of the largest em­ploy­ers in Macclesfield, em­ploy­ing in ex­cess of 170 peo­ple across its group of busi­nesses.

In ad­di­tion to be­ing one of the largest per­sonal in­jury firms in the UK, Thor­n­ey­croft also has a sig­nif­i­cant pri­vate client depart­ment which han­dles con­veyanc­ing, wills and pro­bate, fam­ily law, last­ing pow­ers of at­tor­ney as well as em­ploy­ment mat­ters for in­di­vid­u­als and com­pa­nies.

Hav­ing es­tab­lished her­self as a well­re­spected per­sonal in­jury solic­i­tor, Rachel was ap­pointed a part­ner in 1997 be­fore be­com­ing man­ag­ing direc­tor in 2003 when the firm be­came a limited com­pany.

Found­ing direc­tor Robert Thor­n­ey­croft was re­spon­si­ble for re­cruit­ing Rachel ini­tially and then ap­point­ing her to the role of MD.

Robert com­mented: “Over the last two decades Rachel has been in­stru­men­tal in help­ing to shape the busi­ness into one that has evolved into a well-re­spected and thriv­ing prac­tice. She is well re­spected by her team, clients and our busi­ness part­ners.”

Rachel has es­tab­lished work­ing part­ner­ships with a wide range of com­pa­nies and or­gan­i­sa­tions within the PI sec­tor and is es­pe­cially proud of the work that she does with or­gan­i­sa­tions such as BIRT (Brain In­jury Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Trust).

She ex­plains: “As a firm we rep­re­sent many in­di­vid­u­als who have suf­fered se­ri­ous brain in­juries as a re­sult of ac­ci­dents.

“It is im­por­tant that th­ese in­di­vid­u­als re­ceive prac­ti­cal sup­port and ad­vice, as well as fi­nan­cial com­pen­sa­tion. This is ex­tremely re­ward­ing work but also very hum­bling.”

Look­ing into the fu­ture, Rachel be­lieves that Thor­n­ey­croft are well placed to build on their po­si­tion as a lead­ing provider of high qual­ity legal ser­vices to both their lo­cal and na­tional based clients.

She com­mented: “Thor­n­ey­croft So­lic­i­tors pride them­selves on build­ing long term re­la­tion­ships with clients and their fam­i­lies. What­ever stage of their life they are at, be it buy­ing their first home, mak­ing a per­sonal in­jury claim or re­quir­ing the prepa­ra­tion of a will, we will be there to sup­port and ad­vise them on the cor­rect course of ac­tion.” To find out how Thor­n­ey­croft So­lic­i­tors can help you, please con­tact them on 01625 503444.
