The Legal 500 UK client directory is published each year at the end of September and provides a benchmark for law firms across the East Anglia. This year Gotelee Solicitors celebrates sixteen top three positions across all areas of law which is a tremendous achievement for the Suffolk firm.
Associate Kay Baker, based in the Hadleigh office has particular reason to celebrate. Kay has been commended as a ‘Rising Star’ by the Legal 500 UK for her work in relation to Wills, trusts and probate. ‘Associate Kay Baker in Hadleigh is the standout practitioner and clients remark that she is ‘an excellent lawyer combining legal expertise with empathy to achieve a solution to some of the most complicated scenarios’.
“I am delighted to be recognised by the industry this year. I really enjoy my work, helping the Hadleigh community and meeting local people.”
Adding yet another string to her bow, Kay has also recently qualified as a mediator which means she can help families and businesses work through disputes as an impartial third party with the aim of coming to an agreement outside of court. “Mediation has a high success rate, most disputes being resolved in a day which is a real contrast to some court or tribunal cases which can take months to reach a conclusion. It is immensely satisfying to bring difficult circumstances or deadlock within families to an end. We are a family first firm and to be able to provide a mediation service is very relevant to the Gotelee values” said Kay.
Gotelee has maintained a consistent position in the region, well known for its level of service and with leading lawyers in corporate and commercial, employment, crime, clinical negligence, commercial property, transport and private client work. “We are delighted for Kay and the team in the Hadleigh who work extremely hard.” concludes Charles Rowett, CEO.
