Going the extra mile to develop the next generation

Jones Myers is delighted to celebrate the success of fellow employers who go above and beyond to inspire  and develop their valued employees.     

This ethos chimes with our niche family law firm’s  deep-rooted values – which is why we have sponsored the ‘Best Employer’ category of The Stray Ferret Business Awards.

To merit this accolade, judges were seeking evidence of businesses who embrace a culture of high performance, place a strong emphasis on company values, and have systems in place to inspire their workforce to do their best.   

We warmly congratulate the 2024 finalists – Grantley Hall,  Harrogate Bus Company, LCF Law, Network Scientific and Northern Energy.

This year’s worthy winner is Northern Energy – an independent family business established in 1932 which prides itself on giving customers a 5-Star service and providing a great working environment for its valued staff. Judges also praised the company’s support for an employee  who sadly passed away from cancer.  

Jones Myers Managing Partner, Richard Peaker, who presented the award, said: “Northern Energy is a worthy recipient. We wish this committed and caring business and their fellow finalists continued success in their quest to enable and inspire their staff to fulfil their potential and be the best that they can be.”

Established in 1992, our family law firm is proud of our reputation in attracting and developing the best family lawyers in our field.  Demonstrating Jones Myers’ commitment to consistently delivering excellence in family law, our specialists are based across our Leeds headquarters and our offices located in Harrogate town centre and York city centre.    

We also recognise and reward tomorrow’s talent through wide-ranging initiatives which include supporting the achievements of law graduates at Leeds Beckett University.

In 2020 we launched the Jones Myers Prize for the Best Overall Performance on Master of Laws of England and Wales to a Leeds Law School student – and have been impressed by the tenacity and  talent of the award’s recipients. 

Our wider collaboration with the Law School at Leeds Beckett University has included giving our time and skills to support the Law Faculty’s Professional Mentor Scheme and Law Clinics.
