Legal secretary Lauraine Norcup has clocked up 40 years with Beswicks Legal.

Lauraine joined the team at Beswicks in 1981 as an office junior before working alongside the corporate, commercial property, wills and estates, and, more latterly, residential property teams.

She was helped to celebrate her amazing milestone with gifts of flowers, wine and a two-night luxury hotel break.

Beswicks Legal managing partner Nick Phillips said: “To work for the same company since leaving school 40 years ago is an incredible achievement.

“Lauraine’s knowledge is second to none. She is very often our ‘go to’ person when we have questions about back-office processes and systems, and she uses her experience to help younger members of the team, showing them the ropes.”

Nick added: “At Beswicks, we take great pride in providing our employees with opportunities for career progression, so to see a valued employee like Lauraine celebrate 40 years with us is absolutely tremendous.”
