It has been another crazy 6 months at Nayyars and at the mid point in the year I always stop and reflect on how far we have come. This has been the most successful 6 months we have had to date.
We have been nominated and won various awards. Last month I won Professional of the Year at The English Asian Business Awards. We have been visited by the Manchester Evening News as contender for Business of the Year 2018. We have been shortlisted at The Law Society’s Excellence awards for Small Firm of the Year and Sole Practitioner of the Year. The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony in London in October. I better go out and buy a new dress!
Jokes aside, these are incredible achievements for Nayyars. A huge amount of credit should be given to the Nayyars Team who are absolutely amazing! Fingers crossed and watch this space….
We have acquired and set up a branch office in Levenshulme. This has been an exciting process and we are looking forward to rolling our sleeves up and getting stuck in there. I was born and brought up in Levenshulme, so feel incredibly proud to be doing a full circle and going back to my roots. This office will specialise in various areas including family law, immigration and will writing. Come and join us for a cup of tea there!
At our Head office, we have had an internal move around and department structures have changed. This has resulted in a big increase in fee earner capacity and settlement rates. Our average fees are also at an all-time high. We are on record for a bumper year!
We have started various initiatives within Nayyars including choosing St Anne’s Hospice as our Charity of the Year. All fundraising activities and money paid for attesting documents will be donated to this fantastic charity. We also now have an Employee of the Month who gets a trophy and restaurant vouchers. There have been some very worthy winners!
Despite working hard, there has been a lot of fun along the way. We have held various fun days at the office including an Easter Egg Hunt, Curry Feast and World Cup Party. The Nayyars Social Committee has a lot planned for the next 6 months too. All credit to them following the “work hard play hard” theory!
We have continued to feature heavily in the press as specialist Acid Attack solicitors. I have given interviews to the BBC and various newspapers. We remain active in the fight against acid crime.
2018 so far has been a bumper year for us. We have continued to expand, handled stressful highs and lows with a lot of laughs too. I am excited for the next 6 months.
