Top 20 law firm Irwin Mitchell has announced that it is extending its national family law team to cover its new Cambridge office which opens its doors to clients this week.

Partner Alison Fernandes is making the move from the law firm’s Sheffield office to expand services in Cambridge to include family and divorce law as well as asbestos-related disease, serious injury specialists and a large armed forces team.  Further teams offering additional private client services such as wills advice for individuals will also be on hand.

Alison specialises in advising and representing clients in divorce, financial settlement and private children disputes. She is also an accredited specialist by Resolution, an independent family law organisation.

Neil Whiteley, Regional Managing Partner at Irwin Mitchell in Cambridge which has just opened in Francis House on Hills Road, said:
