We’re not thrilled about promotions *

* We’re breaking out our best victory dance moves to celebrate!

If you’re a regular visitor to the Greenwoods’ website, which we hope you are, you’ll know we’re not an identikit law firm.

And we know, and as a recent LinkedIn commentor highlighted in a not overly positively way, the promotions announcements of law firms traditionally begin ‘We are thrilled to announce …’

Which isn’t really us. Shouldn’t we be a bit more than thrilled? Especially given how hard we know everyone getting promoted has worked. Thrilled feels a bit like you’ve just discovered a pack of Rolos in the back of the cupboard.

So, we took some soundings around the office, and our marketing team had some hilarious ‘conversations’ with a select group of its ‘AI friends’.  And we reckon we’ve changed the narrative.  No ‘We’re thrilled to announce …’ for us.  We are going large!  After all, this is our biggest ever round of promotions.  There’s nothing unlucky about the number thirteen for the thirteen super-talented, all-round brilliant individuals, that are getting promoted this year.

So here goes, we’re slightly nervous now, but every single one of our newly promoted team deserves this.  They. Are. Exceptional.  Ready?

Grab your party hat and start the countdown because we’re about to kick off a celebration that’ll shake the cosmos! Get ready to break out your best victory dance moves and raise the roof as we unveil our 2024 promotions. It’s time to turn the dial to max excitement and blast off into a stratosphere of congratulations to celebrate to the awesomeness of these phenomenal individuals:

From the bottom of our hearts, we want to extend the warmest congratulations to each and every one of you.  Your hard work, dedication, and sheer talent have propelled you to new heights, and we couldn’t be prouder to have you as part of our team.  Here’s to your continued success and all the amazing things yet to come!

And if you work for a law firm that’s ‘thrilled’ about your promotion. Well, that’s nice.  But if actually you fancy working with one that is bursting at the seams with excitement at your success, you need to get in touch with Sam Bunn in our Talent team:  (And start practising your victory dance moves.)
