Clarion expands family law team with two appointments

Clarion has appointed Sarah Buxton and Sarah Collins to its family law team.

Buxton, who has joined the firm as a legal director, has 14 years of experience. She has particular expertise in financial remedy, including advising on financial agreements, and also specialises in children matters.

Collins takes up the position of paralegal following three years as a legal secretary at Clarion. She will assist with all aspects of family work, including divorce, children and finances.

Justine Osmotherley, partner and head of the family team at Clarion, commented: “Ensuring that we continue to offer clients the best possible service by adding to our expertise with experienced lawyers coming on board as well as nurturing new talent, is central to the Clarion culture. Both are welcome additions to our growing team and share our client-focused approach.”

Buxton said: “As family lawyers, we are often helping people during particularly traumatic and distressing periods of their lives and it’s important to offer straight-forward advice while also showing empathy. The Clarion ethos chimes with my own and I am looking forward to working with such experienced and reputable colleagues.”

Collins added: “Having worked in the legal sector for the last seven years, I have developed strong skills to help me in my new role. I am really excited to have this opportunity to grow my career with Clarion.”
