A BUSY lawyer and full-time mum has become a legal pioneer.
Sian Fisher, of Upton, Chester, is the first legal executive in North Wales to become a full partner at a law firm.
Professional body rule changes in 2009 allowed Fellows of the Institute of Legal Executives to become full partners in law firms.
And just one other person in Wales achieved the honour before Sian’s appointment was confirmed.
Sian joins the other five partners at solicitors Cyril Jones and Co (incorporating Stanley Williams), which has offices in Shotton and Wrexham.
Sian joined Cyril Jones and Co in Wrexham as a trainee legal executive in 1992.
She said: “It was the start of four years studying part-time and then a further two years to qualify as a legal executive.
“I really enjoyed it, but I then decided to have a family. I took a few years off work but still maintained a close relationship with the partners and staff.”
