Niche commercial law firm, Murrell Associates have expanded their team in Truro with the addition of two paralegals, Eloise Hall and Megan Bingley. Both new joiners are currently working with the corporate team and will soon be starting their LPC. They have joined at a busy time for Murrell Associates as they continue build their client base – acting for both long standing clients as well as a wealth of new clients in the South West, across the UK and Europe.
Henry Maples, Partner, commented
“We are very lucky to have recruited two excellent paralegals into our team, especially at a time when recruiting talented legal staff is such an issue for firms throughout the country. We are committed to recruiting and developing our lawyers and support staff. Our working practices and culture are inclusive and modern, something which we don’t just pay lip service to.
The firm has an all-employee bonus scheme in place which aims to recognise the important role that everyone plays in the successful delivery of our services to clients and it was great to see the scheme pay out to employees at the end of its first year in operation.
We are very much committed to a genuine offering of agile and flexible working – with our teams having access to flexible and part time hours and, in general, at least 2 days a week at home.”
The addition of Eloise and Megan to the team follows on from the appointment of David Williams (also pictured) who joined as partner in the real estate team earlier this year. There have also been a number of promotions within the firm in 2021, with staff at all levels within the firm moving up as the firm has grown.
Senior Partner, Hugh Murrell commented:
“Recruiting and retaining talented staff who are interested in growing their skills and careers with us has always been a priority. This is an exciting time to join Murrell Associates as we look to grow our offering within existing and future markets. We receive consistently good feedback from referrers and clients about the way we work. Our commentary and rankings in the most recent edition of the Legal 500 is testament to that.
“The ethos running through Murrell Associates is unlike any other law firm. The welcome to owners of all sizes of organisations and start-ups is enquiring, helpful, collaborative and flexible. I have found the whole team without exception to be interested in my business.”
