Thorneycroft Solicitors has agreed to a new funding deal with NatWest as part of its business growth aspirations aimed at enhancing services for clients.
Based in Macclesfield, Thorneycroft Solicitors provides a range of services including residential and commercial conveyancing, employment and human resource advice to SME’s, wills and probate, clinical negligence and personal injury for which it is widely known throughout the UK as a market leader. Thorneycroft Solicitors is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
The headquarters in Bridge Street serve as the base for the firm’s more than 180 staff. Thorneycroft Solicitors also has offices in Buxton and Holmes Chapel.
From its inception in 1990 Thorneycroft Solicitors has been committed to offering clients innovative services. It recently invested in a new mobile application for smart phones and tablet devices in a bid to enhance the overall client experience and improve efficiency within the business.
Rachel Stow, managing director, said: “As a business we are committed to providing clients support that goes beyond providing legal services. We are forward thinking and always looking at ways we can be innovative and enhance the customer experience so things like the mobile app allow for us to deliver on this commitment.”
The directors at Thorneycroft Solicitors recently moved the firm’s banking facilities to NatWest as they were impressed by the bank’s expertise within the legal sector. NatWest commercial manager Aldo Palazzo obtained a loan to support the deal.
Rachel said: “We have heard Steve Arundale, NatWest’s head of professional services, speak at various legal conferences. He is very knowledgeable about the legal sector. When we decided to move our finances to NatWest, we found this level of expertise amongst Aldo and his team. It’s encouraging to have a bank that understands our sector.”
Aldo said: “Thorneycroft Solicitors is a leader in providing innovative solutions to clients that go beyond the business’ excellent legal service provisions. The company directors have a clear vision on the business’ long term future in the legal sector and have invested in services that will enable it to continue to grow. I was delighted to support Thorneycroft Solicitors on this financing agreement and I look forward to working with them in the future”
