Nicola Jones-King, as Head of the Division, is very pleased to announce that the team have been shortlisted for this national award, in recognition of what the team stands for and the high standards of legal service everyone continued to provide to clients throughout the pandemic lockdown and through the merger of the two businesses. She says “these have been challenging months in many ways, with the new pressures of remote working and juggling family and work within a changing world where most client work began virtual overnight, and with huge rises in care and domestic abuse clients needing help. That the team had been able to adapt so well to new ways of working, is a testament to the hard work and dedication of every member, and the true team spirit and cooperation between everyone that makes this team the best group of family lawyers, who are a joy to manage and being nationally recognised, is justly deserved”
