Associateship for Matt Hayes

Bhatia Best Solicitors are delighted to announce that Matt Hayes has been promoted to the role of Associate Partner.

Matt works in our Criminal Defence Department and has been with the firm for 19 years. During that time, Matt has dealt with some of the most serious and newsworthy cases in the East Midlands, at times the Country. In recent years, Matt has also qualified as a solicitor and achieved Duty Solicitor status. He is renowned for his attention to detail and ability to spot evidential issues that others have missed.

As an Associate Partner, Matt will see his involvement in managerial matters increase. He will also be invited to attend the firm’s Partners and Associates Meetings. It is recognition of Matt’s loyalty and ability and sees him move onto another exciting stage of his career.

When asked about this achievement, Matt said “I wish to say a massive thank you to Ash Bhatia and Matt Best for having faith in me back in July 1999 when I started what was meant to be two weeks work experience. My time here has been the most enjoyable and rewarding ‘life sentence’ I could have wished for, having had the privilege of dealing with many high profile cases. Receiving this accolade is a very proud moment in my career. I look forward to being part of the exciting future of the firm, which has evolved greatly in my time.”

Matt will officially become an Associate on the 1st April 2019 but there’s no fooling around here. This is a fantastic achievement by Matt. Here’s to 19 more years!
