Lincoln-based Langleys Solicitors has strengthened its family law unit with a new appointment.
Siobhan Newton is a newly-qualified solicitor and joins the unit from Harrowells.
The company said she will focus on family law, including divorce, the financial aspects of separation and children matters.
In addition, the family law unit has promoted Natalie Wiles to senior paralegal while Leigh Hannam has joined as a paralegal.
The recently published Chambers UK 2018 – the directory of the legal profession – ranks Langleys’ family unit in Band 1 – the top ranking in the directory.
Mark Day, partner in family law and head of Langleys’ private law division, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Siobhan at the same time as our family unit receives the highest recognition in the new edition of Chambers UK.
“The top ranking demonstrates the strength and breadth of the advice and services we provide to clients which includes offering genuine specialism in traditional representation, litigation, mediation and collaborative law matters.”
