Women in Law mentor promoted at Silk Family Law

Yorkshire and Northeast firm Silk Family Law has promoted solicitor Nia Jameson to the position of associate.

Jameson (pictured), who is a key member of the Yorkshire team working across the firm’s city centre office in Leeds and the North Yorkshire office near Richmond, has worked for Silk Family Law since 2015.

She advises and represents in all areas of matrimonial and family law. As an associate, she will be taking an increased firm-wide role in business development and expanding relationships with the wider business community, in addition to her client work.

The promotion will also see her take an active role in supervising and mentoring junior staff.

Jameson has progressed to associate level due to her skills, experience and pragmatic approach working with clients. She deals with all facets of family law and with clients on the financial issues arising from separation or divorce, and also with the arrangements for the parties’ children.

Outside her day-to-day role, Nia supports the BPP Legal Advice Clinic supervisory team based in Leeds. She has also been chosen as a mentor at Durham University as part of the university’s newly launched Women in Law mentorship scheme.

Commenting on her promotion, Jameson said: “I am passionate about family law and am proud to be working with a Legal 500 recognised firm. I am delighted to have been promoted to associate at Silk Family Law.”
She continued: “Helping to lead and inspire junior lawyers is something I am very much looking forward to in my role as an associate and also in my new role as mentor with the Durham University Women in Law Mentorship Scheme, where I will be able to further support and empower future female lawyers. Having studied at Durham University myself, I am excited to be working with them to help women in law achieve great things—something I am extremely passionate about.”

Teresa Davidson, partner at Silk Family Law, said: “We are very pleased to have appointed Nia as an associate at Silk Family Law. As well as being a long-standing and invaluable member of our team, we are exceptionally proud of her work as a mentor and seeing her inspire future generations of women in law. Equality in the legal sector is vitally important to my values as a lawyer and as an employer. We are therefore really proud to have one of our associates acting as a role model and mentoring young women through their studies and beyond.”
