Independent legal practice Brabners has bolstered its family team with the appointment of a new divorce lawyer in Manchester.
Senior associate Amy Harris joins Brabners from boutique firm Vardags and has over 10 years’ experience in family law. She specialises in handling complex financial matters resulting from separation and divorce. She also has extensive experience helping unmarried partners and children with financial claims, as well as the arrangements for children, including the relocation of children abroad.
Joanne Radcliff, partner in Brabners’ family team, said: “Amy brings a wealth of experience to the team and will be crucial to us continuing to develop our presence across the North West. Brabners is currently executing an ambitious growth strategy and Amy’s arrival at the firm assists us in providing our clients with a full family law offering and demonstrates our commitment to expanding the team.
“We specialise in offering the very highest level of service to our clients during significant periods in their lives and it is crucial that our team is equipped with the best people to provide clients with the expert advice and support they need.”
Amy said: “The prospect of working for such a well-established and ambitious firm made Brabners an easy choice for me. Alongside the firm’s ongoing growth, the specialist family team has gone from strength to strength in recent years and I’m keen to get started on developing our presence even further.”
Amy will be based in Brabners’ Manchester office but will advise clients across the North West.
Brabners’ family team is made up of six lawyers and three paralegals across the firm’s Manchester, Liverpool and Preston offices. The Manchester team grew its revenues by 25% in 2018.
