Jones Myers marks continued growth of Harrogate office

Niche family law firm Jones Myers has further expanded its Harrogate team with the appointment of solicitor Lisa Russell, a specialist in children law.

Based at the firm’s Windsor House office, Lisa’s expertise spans over thirteen years and covers all aspects of children law, representing clients in the High Court, County Court and Family Proceedings Court.

A Law Society Children Panel member since 2011, Lisa acts for parents, children, grandparents and Local Authorities and is valued by clients for her empathetic manner and sensible approach.

The internationally renowned nine-strong children’s team – which operates across the firm’s offices in Leeds, Harrogate and York – jointly combines over eight decades of expertise.

Jones Myers partner Kate Banerjee – an acknowledged leader in children law and member of the International Child Abduction and Custody Unit – heads the department.

Said Kate: “Lisa’s wealth of experience is a perfect fit with our team’s reputation and expertise as we attract complex and varied casework and continue to receive increasing commissions from clients in Yorkshire, the UK and overseas.”

The development follows a series of appointments across 2019 for the firm which has its own in-house counsel and is consistently ranked in a joint Top Tier position by the Legal 500 and Chambers guides alongside national practices.

Strengthening its teams in Leeds and Harrogate, Jones Myers has also launched an office in York headed by partner Nicki Mitchell, a skilled mediator who became the first collaborative family lawyer in York in 2005.

In the firm’s Harrogate office Lisa works alongside highly experienced family law solicitor, Rachel Baul, whose specialisms include high net worth financial cases involving business and trust assets in the UK and overseas.
