Thursfields unveils new leadership team

Midlands law firm Thursfields Solicitors has made some key changes among its leadership team designed to continue the firm’s successful growth strategy.

Current managing director Nick O’Hara steps up to the new role of chairman after heading the firm for 13 years. He will have a strategic focus on clients and business development.

Michelle O’Hara has been appointed as managing director after 14 years with Thursfields, during which time, as well as being a practising lawyer, she has been involved in the strategic and operational running of the business.

Her role as head of employment will be taken by new recruit Helena Morrissey who has joined the firm from Squire Patton Boggs (formerly Hammonds), where she was a director in its labour and employment team.

Associate director Jade Linton, recently recognised in Reward 300 Index as a leading employment lawyer, becomes Thursfields’ HR business partner and will combine the dual roles of client work and providing strategic and operational HR advice to the firm.

Ian Bond joins as a director to head up the wills and estates department - he joins with experience from regional and national firms as well as significant commercial exposure within the legal sector.

Nick O’Hara said: “It has been a privilege to lead such a successful, growing law firm for 13 years and I look forward to being able to focus on client relationships and steering our business development as we continue to grow our presence in the Midlands marketplace.”

Stepping into the role of managing director, Michelle O’Hara said: “Nick’s leadership has been a key factor in the growth of Thursfields and I look forward to building on his legacy with the talented team we have here.”

Thursfields Solicitors is one of the region’s longest established law firms, with more than 140 staff in five offices across Worcestershire and the West Midlands. The firm has offices in Worcester, Kidderminster, Halesowen, Solihull and Birmingham.
