Jones Myers further boosts its children’s law expertise with new appointment

Sasha Williams, a solicitor with a strong track record in family law and social care law, has joined niche family law firm, Jones Myers.

Williams joins the department’s nine-strong team – which includes an in-house counsel – and attracts complex and varied casework from within the UK and from abroad. Her experience spans areas including residence, contact, immigration, asylum and domestic violence.

Headed by Kate Banerjee – who has Higher Court Rights and is a member of the International Child Abduction and Custody Unit – the department’s team members jointly combine almost nine decades of expertise.

Williams said that the firm’s reputation of being among the country’s most respected family law firms, was second to none and that she was looking forward to contributing to the “ongoing success of the practice”.

Banerjee said: “In today’s evolving modern world, families are more diverse – bringing wider issues, which impact on children. With a wealth of experience in family law and social care law, Sasha’s expertise compliments our skills as our national and international casework continues to increase.”

Based in Leeds and London, the firm is at the forefront of international child abduction and is accredited by a specialist Panel operated by the International Child Abduction and Contact Unit.
