Solicitor Tom Stenner-Evans has joined award winning Leeds-based legal practice, Thrive Law.

Tom is Thrive’s first Partner appointment, and his addition is pivotal to the firm’s strategic growth plans.

Before joining Thrive, Tom spent over 13 years at Michelmores LLP, a Top 100 national law firm, where he was a partner in the employment law team. He is an experienced employment law specialist, with wide-ranging expertise in a number of sectors, including education, F&I, retail and charities.
He was also a member of the firm’s Diversity & Inclusivity Committee, trainee recruitment panel and mentoring scheme.

Jodie Hill, founder and managing partner at Thrive Law says “ I am delighted to welcome to Tom to the team, he has a real passion for diversity and inclusion and is really aligned with our values. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and will be an asset to the team as we continue to grow.”

Tom is passionate about progressive leadership, workplace culture and wellbeing at work, all of which influenced his decision to join Thrive Law.

Tom says “when I was deciding on the next chapter in my career, I was fully expecting to end up working on my own. However, after speaking with Jodie, and hearing how aligned her values are with mine, I knew that it was the right place for me to be. Her reputation precedes her and I am excited to be joining her team. I am confident that we can provide an exceptionally good offering to clients, whilst also taking steps to help change the legal profession for the better”.
