Fond farewell to Janice Newsome

MKB Solicitors LLP

After a long and successful career, MKB recently bid farewell to one of its most experienced Legal Secretaries. Janice Newsome has recently retired from MKB after working with us for an incredible 40 years!

Janice started her career as a Pharmacist before taking time out of work to start a family and following this embarked upon a career change, much to MKB’s benefit. Janice joined MKB as a Legal Secretary in June 1976 and worked for David Wright, our former Managing Partner, in the Property Department. Janice ably assisted David for 24 years, seeing much change in that time in working practices and technological advances, before taking up residence at the opposite end of our building.

A vacancy became available to work for Senior Partner and Head of our Family Department, Alan Glover, in 2000 and Janice answered the call. Since that time Janice has worked for Alan with distinction and it is with regret that we learnt of Janice’s intention to retire earlier this year.

We wish to unreservedly thank Janice for her long and unerring service over the past 40 years. Her dedication to the job has been of huge benefit to the firm in assisting senior members of our team on many detailed and complex matters over her distinguished career. Janice will be greatly missed and we wish her all the very best for a long and healthy retirement with her loving family.
