Shoosmiths grows family team following recognition as top firm




Shoosmiths grows family team following recognition as top firm

National law firm, Shoosmiths has boosted its family law team in Manchester with the appointment of experienced specialist Anita Shepherd as a senior associate.

 

The move comes as Shoosmiths moves forward with its ambitious growth strategy and after its recent recognition by leading industry publication, eprivateclient, as one of the top family law firms in the UK.

 

Anita is a specialist in high value financial matters and sensitive cases involving children. She brings nearly 20 years’ experience to the role and previously worked as head of family at David Blank Furniss.

 

A member of Resolution, the national organisation of family lawyers committed to non-confrontational approaches, Anita strives to promote alternatives to court proceedings to resolve relationship disputes.

 

Her appointment follows the recent hire of partner Peter Morris to head up the family unit in Shoosmiths’ new Leeds office, and is part of the firm’s ambitious growth plans to develop its family law team and bolster its high net worth private client service offering in the North of England.

 

Chris Longbottom, head of family law in Manchester, commented: ‘This is an exciting period of expansion for the Manchester office and Anita’s appointment is part of our continued investment in people to create an industry-leading family law team who are experts in advising high net worth individuals.

 

“Our recent listing as a top family law firm is testament to our expertise, the quality of our work, the relationships we build with our clients and the results we achieve for them. We now offer a diverse range of specialisms across the spectrum of family law to ensure that our clients - in any situation - can receive bespoke legal advice that delivers the best possible result.”

 

Neil Hobden, partner and  national head of family law added: “We are always seeking to bring talented expert legal practictioners to Shoosmiths. The recruitment of Anita refects this. She is well-known and respected in the region and her skills and expertise perfectly complement our existing family law service offering.  We have an established reputation as go-to lawyers for high net worth individuals and bringing Anita on board will enable us to continue to build a formidable team in this area.”

Shoosmiths recently moved into brand new state-of-the -art premises at the XYZ building in Spinningfields, transferring its entire 190 strong team into an agile working environment to support recruitment and ensure the office can continue to pursue its growth ambitions.
