Family Law Partners has announced further growth to its thriving South East practice with the arrival of respected family lawyer Kate Elliott who joins from Starke & Co. Joining as a Consultant Solicitor, Kate’s arrival follows the company’s expansion into London with a new office in Marylebone for the Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 ranked firm.
City trained, and having worked exclusively in specialist family law practices, including two top tier family law firms, Kate has built an excellent reputation as a highly respected family lawyer. The 2018 Legal 500 directory described Kate as “a forward thinker who makes no decision without first contemplating all the potential consequences and fiercely protects her clients’ interest”. Chambers 2017 said that Kate “is excellent in negotiations, and able to resolve matters speedily and cost-effectively.”
Kate says “I have worked in top tier firms for over a decade, and what attracted me most to Family Law Partners is their clear values and unique approach. Increasingly, clients are demanding the opportunity to pave a different route through divorce and separation – one which suits their unique circumstances keeps them in control and reduces the impact on the children. Dispute Resolution is key to this and the different options offered by Family Law Partners to clients is both impressive and exciting to me as a family law practitioner. I’m thrilled to be joining the team at what is such a key stage in their continued growth.”
Robert Williams, Director at Family Law Partners, said “Hot off the heels of our move into London, we are delighted to announce the arrival of Kate who will strengthen our team even further. A highly respected family lawyer, Kate’s track record speaks for itself. Her accredited status, recently completed mediation training and City experience makes her a perfect fit not only for our own ambitious team but for clients who, quite rightly, expect their family lawyer to deliver on support, compassion and results in equal measure”.
Kate joins the Family Law Partners team on the 24th April 2019 as a Consultant where she will advise clients across Sussex, London and the Home Counties, as well as advising international clients.
