Langleys appoints new family law partner as it expands further into East Yorkshire

York and Lincoln-based law firm Langleys Solicitors has appointed Claire Ward as a partner in its family law team.

Ward has more than 20 years of experience as a family lawyer, with expertise in advising clients on separation and divorce.

She was appointed to assist the firm’s growth in the East Yorkshire area, where she has a strong reputation. Ward was previously based in Hull for many years and now advises clients throughout the East Yorkshire region, including Beverley, York and Scarborough.

Ward regularly advises on complex, high-value cases and has particular expertise in financial settlements, as well as property disputes and pre-nuptial agreements.

She also acts on behalf of parents in private children disputes over relocation, international cases and allegations of abuse.

Ward has built up a professional network of barristers, accountants and trusted advisors over the years and is able to put together the most effective team for her clients.

Des Mannion, chief executive officer at Langleys, said: “Claire is a fantastic addition to the team, and will be an excellent asset as we increase our presence in East Yorkshire.”

“She is known for her sensible and pragmatic approach to cases, allowing her to resolve complex cases quickly and amicably, and with compassion. I have no doubt she is the right person to help lead the team as we develop our family law and wider private client offering in Yorkshire.”

Commenting on her appointment, Ward said: “I’m delighted to be joining Langleys and helping the family law team expand further into the East Yorkshire area. I am looking forward to developing a leading team of specialist family lawyers providing first class service. I always have the best interests of my client’s and their family at heart, and strive to achieve the best possible results for them throughout what can be an extremely difficult process.”
