Jones Myers solicitor to chair YRes

Jones Myers solicitor Rosanna Hyett has been appointed chair of the Young Resolution (YRes) committee.

YRes represents the next generation of Resolution’s nationwide group of family lawyers and other professionals who are committed to the constructive approach to family disputes.

Hyett, who is experienced in divorce, separation, financial issues and disputes resulting from relationship breakdowns, now chairs for West and North Yorkshire across 2019. She has also previously taken on roles as committee member and secretary.

With the aim of boosting awareness of Resolution and promoting its code of conduct, YRes provides networking, seminars, tailored training sessions and organises social events.

Commenting on the organisation, Hyett said: “The forum enables members to share their expertise with peers to benefit their firms and strengthen professional relationships both regionally and nationally. Attending events is a great opportunity for junior family lawyers and I would encourage as many as possible to get involved.”

Jones Myers founder Peter Jones is a former national chair of Resolution and current chair of the accreditation committee, which oversees the academic development of specialist family lawyers.

On the appointment of Hyett, he said: “Our firm is a long-standing member of Resolution which also considers the needs of the whole family—and in particular always strives to put children’s interests first.”

“YRes is a formative development forum and we wish Rosanna every success in her role. We always advocate that people seeking family lawyers instruct firms or individuals who are members of Resolution and who practice the organisation’s sensitive, constructive and cost-effective approach to family issues.”
