Jones Myers expands into York

Jones Myers has opened an office in York with the appointment of a three-strong team, including a partner with 25 years of experience in family law.

The new team at the family law firm, which also has offices in Leeds and Harrogate, will be based at Blake House in St Martin’s Lane, York.

Leading the team in York is collaborative lawyer and partner Nicki Mitchell, a specialist in the financial aspects of relationship breakdown and complex cases involving family businesses, multiple properties and complicated pension arrangements.

Associate solicitor Samantha Gunnell, who is also a collaborative family lawyer, brings extensive experience in matters including financial settlements, cohabitation, and pre- and post-nuptial agreements.

Secretary of Resolution for North and West Yorkshire, Gunnell is also skilled in children law arrangements.

Legal assistant Lynne Richards, who has worked in family law for almost three decades, supports the team.

Richard Peaker, partner and director at Jones Myers, said: “Our York expansion marks a formative development for our firm whose lawyers are recognised leaders in their field. We wish Nicki, Sam and Lynne every success as we continue to go from strength to strength with a talented team who share our ethos and values.”

Mitchell added: “Jones Myers’ reputation as an exceptional niche family law firm is second to none and we are proud to be applying our expertise to its expanding and valued client portfolio at this pivotal period in the practice’s growth.”

The launch of the York office and new roles follow the expansion of the law firm’s Harrogate office in February with the appointment of senior family law solicitor Rachel Baul.
