Organisation helps achieve better outcomes in the Family Court for families and Children.
Hannah Saxe, Senior Associate Solicitor at Irwin Mitchell has been elected to the National Resolution Committee, which helps lead, shape and bring to life the vision of Family Law organisation Resolution.
Resolution is a community of 6,500 family justice professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues in a constructive way. It was founded in 1982 by a group of family lawyers who believed that a non-confrontational approach to family law issues would produce better outcomes for separating families and their children.
Each year the membership votes new members onto the National Committee, Resolution's board of directors.
Commenting on her election Hannah said “It is a real honour to be elected on to the committee, to be able to help lead Resolution, and in turn, bring about positive changes to the Family Law system. I look forward to contributing to the committee’s great work in helping families of all types to have a better, less contentious experience. This year we have seen No-Fault divorce enter into UK law and more and more clients are asking us about how they can resolve their disputes more amicably whether through divorce or about their children.”
Expert Opinion“I’m very proud that Hannah has been elected to the Resolution National Committee, a real testament to her expertise and hard work in the family law space.
“As family lawyers, achieving the best outcomes for our clients and their children is central to what we do, and for one of our own lawyers to be able to play a fundamental role in shaping how the family court system operates really is exciting.”

Irwin Mitchell has recently appointed an in-house counsellor to help clients navigate difficult or emotional situations with a combination of counselling and coaching - further adding to the capability of one of the biggest family law teams in the UK.
This follows the launch of its family Mediation Support Service in January after finding growing demand from clients for ways to keep their divorce or children arrangements out of court. The firm also has specialist private client and residential property lawyers as well as a financial planning team to help clients with other aspects of their life-admin following divorce.
The new service will focus on giving clients holistic support around the logistics of mediation as well as the key information they need to know, tailored to their individual situation, on how to achieve the best outcome for their split and to keep the situation as amicable as possible.
