Lake Legal promotes solicitor to associate

Niche family law firm Lake Legal has promoted solicitor Hollie Burnett to associate.

Burnett (pictured) attended Northumbria University and qualified as a solicitor in 2015 at a firm in East Yorkshire. She later relocated to Leeds and joined Lake Legal in May 2017.

As a solicitor, Burnett specialises in financial settlements arising from divorce, cohabitation disputes, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, and child-related issues.

She also sits on the local committee of Resolution, which promotes a non-confrontational approach to family problems.

Following her promotion to associate at Lake Legal, Burnett will become more involved with the marketing and management of the law firm, as well as the development and training of junior members of the team.

Claire Glaister, who has herself risen up the ranks from associate to partner at Lake Legal, said: “Hollie’s promotion is a reflection of her talent, commitment to the firm and growing reputation in the market. Hollie has become an integral part of the team and of our business strategy for the future. Hollie has a maturity beyond her years and her promotion is the next stage in what will undoubtedly prove to be a fantastic career.”
