Thursfields Solicitors has appointed Elaine Collins, a specialist in private children matters, as an associate solicitor in the firm’s family department.
Elaine, who also deals with the financial aspects of divorce and separation, joins Thursfields’ Solihull office after working with Benussi & Co in Birmingham for the last two years.
She studied at Staffordshire University and then the University of Law in Birmingham before moving to Coventry to train with Hammon Oakley for two years and work at Rotherhams & Co for six years. She then moved to Birmingham to work at Sultan Lloyd for three years before joining Benussi & Co.
Elaine said: “I wanted a new challenge and am pleased to be joining such a forward-thinking, progressive firm with an excellent reputation.
“Thursfields has an expanding family department and intends to develop its presence here in Solihull, and so I am excited about the opportunities this role holds for me.”
Shane Miller, director of the family department at Thursfields said: “We’re delighted to have recruited Elaine who has specialised in private children matters and has wider experience in divorce and finance.
“As Thursfields continues to grow its size and reputation across the Midlands it’s pleasing to see how we’re continuing to attract high-calibre lawyers.
“The family division at Thursfields is now one of the region’s strongest, with many experts who are determined to make a difference to our clients and our company”.
