Growth in the last 12 months
Over the last 12 months, like most firms, Ringrose Law has faced the biggest challenges to date. With over 140 staff set to work from home within a week and both staff and clients adapting to new working practices overnight, the firm and the team have faced some tough challenges.
Despite all this change the firm has seen one of the best years in terms of growth and this has also reflected in the appointment of 6 new Salaried Partners over the last 12 months.
Rebecca Freitas was announced Partner last month and Amanda Green, Costa Kyriacou, Kelly Langworthy, Emma McGrath and Richard Teare were announced Partners last year. They join Sarah Spencer – Head of the Commercial Property Team at Ringrose Law, who became a Salaried Partner in 2017.
Rebecca Freitas is a Criminal and Personal Injury Solicitor at the firm. Rebecca is a highly respected Criminal Solicitor in Lincolnshire and has worked on some high-profile cases across the region. Rebecca is also an active member of the firm’s staff engagement team, driving change throughout the firm.

Costa has achieved great success at such a young age, becoming one of Lincolnshire’s 30under30 in 2019 and winning ‘Employee of the Year’ at the Lincolnshire Media Business Awards earlier this year.

The team is one of the largest in the County and deals with a range of cases from clients all over the Country.
