Genus Law moves for boutique firm
A Leeds-based employment law practice set up by an Insider 42 under 42 has been taken over by corporate law firm Genus Law.
Boutique firm Pharos Legal was established in 2011 by Natalie Saunders, a 42 under 42 in 2012, who will head up the employment team at Genus Law. Emma Hammond joins as an associate solicitor.
Judit Petho, chief executive of Genus Law, said: "The ongoing expansion of Genus Law is now complemented by Natalie Saunders and Emma Hammond joining our employment law team.
"In particular, the strong leadership and dynamism Natalie brings will help to drive forward our strategy for growth, both in the Yorkshire region and nationally.
"The skills they will both bring to our modern practice perfectly combine with Genus Law’s growing team of commercial lawyers to deliver the dynamic and transparent customer service we’re extremely proud of."
