Jones Myers expands with new solicitor

Niche family law firm Jones Myers has appointed solicitor Benjamin Pitman.

Pitman has worked in all areas of family law, including divorce, financial settlements, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, and children matters.

He is also experienced in cases involving family businesses and property abroad and has acted on behalf of high net worth individuals.

Jones Myers in-house barrister Andrew Fox said: “Benjamin’s experience complements our team’s expertise and we warmly welcome him on board. Attracting and retaining top talent remains a top priority and Benjamin’s appointment coincides with an increase in instructions from our local, national and international clients.”

The team expansion is the latest in a series of developments in a decisive year in which Jones Myers has further boosted the team at its Harrogate office and expanded its children team.

Earlier this year, the firm launched an office in York with a three-strong team led by partner Nicki Mitchell, a collaboratively trained lawyer and expert in the financial aspects of relationship breakdown and particularly complex cases.

Jones Myers also has an office in Leeds.
