Brethertons are celebrating after our Chief Operating Officer Sally Jones, won Non Lawyer of the Year at the Symphony Legal Awards 2016. 

The annual event rewards firms and teams in the legal sector and this year introduced a new award recognising exceptional work of non-lawyers in the industry. Sally Jones has been with Brethertons since 2015 and is designing and implementing our new operating processes and organisational structure ONEON™ (Operating Network Evolving Organisational Need). Her work to date has included the creation of a robust strategic 3 year plan, an overhaul of the management board structure, the design of a new staff career road map and the redevelopment of the practice management system. And she’s only just got started.

CEO Shaun Jardine explains the significant contribution Sally has made already “At Brethertons we like to think that we are a progressive forward thinking law firm, who want to change the way people think about lawyers. Since Sally Jones joined us however, our aims, aspirations and ambitions have been taken to a whole new level. She is not only ultra organised and seriously intelligent but has designed a robust, scoped and deliverable blue print to enable change to happen, for people to understand their roles and for high performing teams to be created. As a colleague, she is great company, amusing and has an encyclopaedic knowledge of 1980s pop music!”

Indeed these sentiments are echoed by those who work closely with Sally. They describe her as a strong, inspirational, supportive leader who is a pleasure to work with. Tony Woodhouse, Head of Systems and Development added “Sally is creating a vision where every Brethertons employee has clearly defined KPIs and goals and can both contribute towards and share in the success of the firm.”

On accepting the award Sally who was recently made a Partner, said “I am delighted to accept this award which recognises the value that non-lawyers can add to legal firms. I am lucky to work for a firm that values fresh thinking and is not afraid to become the trail blazer for what a modern law firm should look like.”
