Emma Nawaz, Managing Director of Blackstone Solicitors
Hale based law firm, Blackstone Solicitors, have just announced that they have opened a London office to service the continued expansion of their work for clients based in the capital and overseas. The office is in Mayfair and will specialise in commercial litigation, property law for commercial and residential clients, corporate legal services, family law and wills and probate.
Established in Hale in 2010 and led by award winning lawyer, Emma Nawaz, Blackstone Solicitors has grown quickly and in 2016 announced a turnover of just over £1million – an increase of 34% on the previous year. In the same year, several new partners and lawyers were appointed, expanding the team from 10 to 23 over a 12-month period. For 2017 the firm has forecast a further 50% growth.
Blackstone Solicitors achieved national and international fame in 2014/15 when they took on and won cases against high street banks over accusations of racial discrimination concerning British citizens with Iranian backgrounds or Iranians living in the UK. These high-profile cases won worldwide media attention.
Commenting on the expansion into the capital, Managing Director, Emma Nawaz said, “Our portfolio of London based clients is continuing to expand. Opening this Mayfair office will allow us to service their needs locally and to expand our client base further. We are a passionate and tenacious law firm totally focused on winning cases for our clients. We are delighted to open this London office.”
