Expert Opinion“I’m delighted to be welcoming so many new faces to the national team, which marks an important and exciting step towards growing our capabilities as a law firm.
“The fact that so many of our new solicitors aren’t tied to a specific office either is a testament to our new nationally-focused strategy, which is aimed to give clients the very best service no matter where they’re based in the UK or beyond.
“These new faces bring a range of skills to our national team including Sharia law specialisms and collaborative law training, which we’re very excited to see in action to help our clients with their needs, no matter how complex.
“I’d like to offer a warm welcome to them all and look forward to seeing their work in action with their clients, their family law colleagues and the wider firm.” Ros Bever - Partner
