Fidler & Pepper Lawyers, the multi-award-winning law firm that specialises in Conveyancing, Wills, Probate and Trusts matters, has announced that it has appointed two new board members.

Joanne Godson and Wendy Walker have been made directors of the firm, which services clients across the UK from its offices in Mansfield and Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire.

CEO Mark Slade said: “We’ve worked hard as a whole team to position Fidler & Pepper so that it moves forward being a great place to work, with the right people in the right places.

“Both Joanne and Wendy have been key to the day-to-day running of the business, and also in the development of our strategic plans that are laying the foundations for a very strong future.

“I’m delighted that they have joined the board and bring with them a wealth of knowledge, experience and a passion to get things done correctly.”

Joanne Godson has more than 30 years of experience of working in HR roles, and has been a consultant to Fidler & Pepper for 15 years, acting as an HR advisor and more latterly as Head of People and Operations.

She said: “My role is ensuring that we do everything we can to link the needs of our employees to the needs of the business, ensuring that our clients receive a great service. It makes perfect business sense to do this in order to secure a successful future for all of us.”

Wendy joined Fidler & Pepper 37 years ago, aged 16, on a YTS scheme and has worked her way up, now managing the day-to-day activities of the Conveyancing department.

She said: “I feel very proud to have been made a director, and I think this just shows that anything is possible if you work hard and believe in yourself. I love working at Fidler & Pepper and I am extremely passionate about the company and the great team of people that I work with.”

As a specialist firm that regularly looks at how it can improve how it delivers services, Fidler & Pepper recently opted to become regulated by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC), an organisation that supports and promotes innovation.
