The Manchester office of national law firm, Irwin Mitchell, is to continue the expansion of its family law team with the appointment of Ros Bever as a Partner.

Ros, who has been practising family law for more than 15 years, joins Irwin Mitchell from Mace & Jones where she was Partner. Originally based in the firm’s Knutsford office, Ros moved to establish and head up the firm’s Manchester city centre family practice in 2005.

Ranked as a leading individual in both Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, Ros  is described by the latter as “. . . commercially aware and always willing to go that extra mile for the client." (2011 edition).

Working alongside Family Partner, Elizabeth Tait, Ros is a collaborative lawyer who specialises in high value finance divorce cases. She is actively involved in Resolution, the specialist family law group, where she is a member of the Manchester Area Committee and one of its accredited specialists dealing with complex financial settlement.

Commenting on her appointment, Ros said: “This is a great opportunity and one which I am very much looking forward to. Irwin Mitchell has a strong reputation and I’m excited by the prospect of working with fellow Partner, Liz Tait, to help develop this further in the future.”

Martin Loxley, National Head of Family Law at Irwin Mitchell, added: “Ros’ appointment is part of our ongoing strategic plan to build one of the strongest national networks of family lawyers.

“The Family Justice System is undergoing significant reform and it’s important that as an innovative firm, we continue to invest in people with a wide range of expertise and specialist skills. Ros certainly fits the bill and complements our existing team very well. She is a very important addition and no doubt will be an asset to the family department, not just in Manchester but also nationally.”
