Vicki Rawlins Joins From Eric Robinson Solicitors
Leading national law firm Irwin Mitchell has recruited a new associate to its growing Family Law team in Southampton.
Vicki Rawlins joins from Eric Robinson Solicitors, where she headed up the family law practice. Having qualified as a solicitor in 2005, Vicki is well-versed in handling a full range of family law matters including pre and post-nuptial agreements, children cases, cohabitation agreements and complex financial settlements during divorce among others.
Vicki is also a Resolution-accredited specialist in private children law and domestic abuse matters, and is a qualified mediator.
She joins Irwin Mitchell’s Southampton Family Law team, which has gone from strength to strength in recent months. Led by partner Katharine Shaw, who joined the firm in 2016, the team has since grown to include associates Dipal Patel and Vicky Burrows as well as solicitor Jelena Korobkova.
The team’s legal prowess was confirmed recently by the leading independent legal directory The Legal 500’s latest UK rankings, which described the team as having ‘an enviable reputation’ and that practice head Katharine ‘is an unflappable character who always gets quickly to the nub of a case’.
Vicki will also work closely with the leading law firm’s national Family Law team, headed by partner Ros Bever, as well as the firm’s Private Wealth division which is one of the largest national private client practices in the country.
Expert Opinion“We’re very pleased to have Vicki on board, who is an experienced solicitor who knows the Southampton market well as well as being a well-known name herself.
“Our team has grown significantly since we set up the practice in 2016 and we are becoming a serious player in the South Coast market. Vicki’s expertise and that she is a Resolution-accredited specialist is another string to the team’s bow.
“Vicki will also be crucial to further developing our links in the region and helping us to grow the practice so we are known as the go-to Family Law team in the region. We are all looking forward to having her join.” Katharine Shaw - Partner
