Rising star in the legal world

Sarah Naylor, an associate solicitor with Atherton Godfrey, has made it through to the final stages of the Rising Star category of the Claims Innovation Awards to be held in Manchester in May.
The awards celebrate firms, teams and individuals from across the legal services industry that constantly find new ways of raising standards, growing business and improving access to justice.
Sarah made an impression on the judges with her swift career progression, her skills and knowledge of the law and her drive and determination to deliver excellent results for clients.
Whilst initially a member of our Personal Injury Team, Sarah has also specialised in Employment Law, General Litigation and Professional Negligence.
Outside work, Sarah is a keen sportswoman and plays basketball, having represented England for over nine years and narrowly missing out on making Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics.
Diane Parker, partner and head of our Personal Injury department said: “Sarah initially joined us as a trainee and now leads our Employment Law Team. She is a perfect role model and her enthusiasm is reflected in the attitude of her team and in their professional achievements.
“Sarah’s place within the firm can easily be summed up – she is quite simply a ‘star’ so nominating her for this award was a very easy decision.”
Our firm is no stranger to the Claims Innovation Awards. partner and head of litigation John McQuater won the Lawyer of the Year category in 2011.
