Irwin Mitchell Expands Manchester Family Law Team

Two New Specialist Lawyers Join Fast Growing Practice


Leading law firm Irwin Mitchell has strengthened its family law team with the appointment of two specialist lawyers at its Manchester office.

Jenna Lucas has joined Irwin Mitchell with six years' experience gained at Howells Solicitors and Elliot Mather LLP.

Jenna has a broad knowledge of complex and unusual cases and has worked on many high profile projects involving children and affluent clients with complex trust, business and farming assets. 

The 28-year-old, originally from Cardiff, also member of Family Law Bar Association (FLBA) and a Middle Temple SACHS prize winner, will specialise in complex cases involving children and financial matters at Irwin Mitchell.
She is joined by the Resolution Accredited Specialist solicitor Hannah Saxe, 31, from Manchester, who has six and a half years' experience gained at Mace & Jones and Weightmans LLP.

Hannah has particular expertise in the law relating to cohabiting couples and complex disputes regarding the arrangements for children. She also has considerable experience of achieving financial settlements on divorce, in cases involving substantial assets and with international elements.

Hannah is also the secretary and a founding member of the Manchester Young Resolution Committee, a branch of the national organisation which supports the development of family lawyers and campaigns for improvements to the family justice system.

Ros Bever, Partner in the Irwin Mitchell family law team in Manchester, said: “It’s important for our continued growth and success that we keep investing in people with a wide range of expertise so I’m delighted that Hannah and Jenna have joined us.

“They are important additions to the team and no doubt will be an asset to the family department, not just in Manchester but also nationally as our clients benefit from their specialist knowledge.”
