The event was well attended by guests form the Midlands business community who were left amazed by local TV magician Ben Hanlin.
Jane Ellis, Head of Employment and previous partner of Pinsent Curtis and Wragge & Co, said, “The team is geared towards providing tailored advice and packages to its clients. It is key that we understand our clients’ businesses in order to provide the best advice and so we want to form an extension of our clients’ businesses as far as possible.” She added, “We will go and visit our clients, without charge, and given that costs are important to all businesses at present, we will always provide a clear fee estimate from the outset so there are no surprises later down the line. ”
Jane and Ian have extended their team by appointing Toni Sharp, joining as an Associate Solicitor. They have also recently recruited 2 paralegals to their team and are very optimistic about the future. Toni said, “Ellis Hass & Co. is a very proactive and dynamic team which puts the client at the heart of everything it does.” She added, “This team is very different to any other I have worked for. It is focused purely on its clients and provides a very tailored and professional service. I feel very privileged to be part of such a welcoming and experienced team and I am extremely positive for the future.”
