On the move: the latest East Midlands hires

Neusha Mazaher

Leicester-based niche commercial law practice Southall Hathaway & Co has retained an award-winning trainee solicitor as a commercial litigator.

Neusha Mazaher is due to be admitted as a Higher Court Solicitor Advocate (Civil) next month (March) – having recently completed her Post Graduate Diploma/Legal Practice Course at De Monfort University and being awarded their Irwin Mitchell Prize for Best Overall Performance.

Mazaher, who has been with the company in its various guises as Edward Hands and Lewis and EHL Commercial since leaving university in 2014, said: “Working a full-time job and studying was difficult at times, but the journey taught me a lot about myself and the profession. Winning the LPC award was a bit of a shock, but a great feeling, and it shows that hard work and dedication really does pay off.”
