Strengthening our Family law offering with new team hire

01 April 2017

We’re delighted to have recently expanded our Family law team, who joined our existing team on 1 April 2017.

Partners Catherine Bedford, Nicholas Westley and Mark Irving, together with their associates, will significantly enhance the firm’s existing Family team and further strengthen our Private Capital offering.

Catherine, who founded the Family group at Lee & Thompson, has recently been ranked in the ‘Top 10 Family Lawyers’ by Spears. She will head up the enlarged Family team at Harbottle & Lewis.

The team will continue to offer a premium service for individuals experiencing issues arising from relationship breakdown and relating to the care of children.

“The hire of this excellent team will enhance our already highly-rated Family group’s capabilities,” said Glen Atchison, managing partner and head of the Private Capital group. “It supports a key part of the firm’s overall strategy of developing our Private Capital offering, that provides private individuals with best-in-class legal advice across a wide range of disciplines. This is a hugely positive hire for Harbottle & Lewis and we are all delighted that Catherine and her team will be joining the firm.”

Catherine added: “The Harbottle & Lewis Family team has an excellent and established reputation and we are delighted to be joining them. The breadth of the Private Capital offering at Harbottle & Lewis and the platform it offers will undoubtedly be of significant benefit and value to us and to many of our clients.”
