Weightmans promotes family lawyer in Leeds

Family law consultant Louise Walker has been promoted to partner at Weightmans.

Walker (pictured) leads the firm’s family law department in Leeds.

She has more than 25 years of experience in all areas of family law, specialising in financial disputes and arrangements following the breakdown of a relationship.

Walker advises the full range of individuals with relationship problems, including high net worth individuals in protecting their interests, and has significant experience in serving the professional, medical, retail and wider business community.

Her areas of practice include all aspects of relationship breakdown, including separation agreements, divorce, financial settlements, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, and advising on arrangements for children.

Her promotion comes as part of a round that saw three other Weightmans associates elevated to partner in Liverpool and London.

Weightmans managing partner John Schorah said of the promotions: “I would like to congratulate our four new partners for their achievement—their focus on the client and quality service are integral to our success, and I know that they will continue to work hard to deliver new and exciting customer solutions.

“Weightmans’ enterprise and teamwork is something I am incredibly proud of—and this is something that will ultimately set the firm apart from its competitors.”
