PCB Solicitors 25th Anniversary of Staff

A local firm of solicitors is celebrating a quarter of a century of continued service from one of its employees.

Shropshire-based PCB Solicitors has honoured one of its longest serving employees, Alison Haughton a Licensed Conveyancer based in its Shrewsbury office, with a special commemorative watch.

Alison began her career with the firm in January 1988, initially on a two-week temporary contract before taking on a full-time secretarial role supporting all of the departments, undertaking various duties such as administration, accountants, credit control, and debt collection. In 1996, after assisting with a number of conveyancing transactions, Alison enrolled onto a Council for Licensed Conveyancers’ course at Shrewsbury College, qualifying with a distinction for Legal Accounting in 1998. In her current role, Alison has taken on a varied case load which includes residential sales and purchases, re-mortgages and leasehold transactions. 

Alison Haughton said: “If you’d told me when I started that two week contract I’d still be here 25 years later, I’d have never believed you! It has been an absolute pleasure to have developed my career with such a fantastic firm. The Partners and my colleagues have supported me during training and when I decided to work towards further qualifications to better my legal career, for which I’m truly grateful.”

Rachael Hughes, Managing Partner at PCB, commented: “Alison is just one of a number of our team who have been with the practice for such a significant period of time. By offering support and training, and encouraging our staff to develop their careers here, we retain that expertise for the benefit of our clients.
“Indeed, recent internal auditing carried out to measure client satisfaction during 2012 has proved extremely positive, with almost 90% of respondents ‘very satisfied’ with the service received, in no small part to the efforts of long-serving staff like Alison,” Rachael concluded.

PCB Solicitors LLP is a modern partnership, with offices in Shrewsbury, Broseley, Church Stretton, Craven Arms, Knighton, Ludlow, Telford, and Worcester. While they have origins back to 1860, the firm is forward-looking and offers a full range of legal advice for both individuals and businesses, including property, family advice and childcare matters, wills, trusts, probate and estate planning, accident and personal injury, litigation, criminal law and corporate and business law.
