Winn Solicitors Celebrates Legal 500 Success

Winn Solicitors is continuing its successful year with the Newcastle based firm celebrating its first entries to the prestigious Legal 500 listing, widely recognised as the leading guide to law firms in the country.

Head of litigation, Ghazala Bashey, has received recommended lawyer status. Ghazala, from Newcastle, was instrumental in the launch of Winn Solicitors and has played a significant role in the growth of the firm which now operates as part of the Winn group, following a successful investment by JZ International and Souter investments last year. She also has a strategic focus upon staff development with considerable involvement in training and ongoing mentoring of the team at Winns.

The firm, which employs almost 300 people, has also been recognised by Legal 500 for its work in personal injury.

Jeff Winn, managing director said: “We are delighted to have achieved our first ever listings in the Legal 500 and this is testament to the hard work, considerable efforts and valuable contribution that our dedicated team has made to the business over the last year.”

Ghazala Bashey added: “The Legal 500 carries huge prestige, both within the legal sector and by those seeking the highest quality of professional expertise, so we see this recognition as a real achievement. We look forward to building upon this success over the coming year and further reinforcing our position within the industry.”
