Keebles’ family law department has appointed a partner as its new head of department and a legal director who jointly combine over three decades of expertise in the field.

Joe Bartlett, a highly skilled collaborative family lawyer with a strong track record in dealing with high net worth cases, is experienced in all areas of family law including financial remedies and private children disputes.

Accredited mediator Antony Ball, who is also a collaborative lawyer and has worked with the firm for almost a decade, has been made legal director. His expertise spans pre and post-nuptial agreements, cohabitation disputes and injunctions.

Another key development sees Rebecca Crofts – an experienced member of the Law Society Children Panel – promoted to senior associate. Rebecca specialises in children matters including disputes between family members or concerns involving the local authority.

Keebles’ partner, Paul Trudgill, said: “Joe, Antony and Rebecca combine a wealth of expertise in their field. We wish them continued success in their new roles as they carry on the legacy of Vanessa Fox, our former head of family law who recently passed away, to make a difference to the lives of our valued clients.”

Delivering services across Yorkshire and the North of England, the latest Legal 500 lauds the ‘strong and well-established‘ family team on its expertise in divorce and financial remedy matters.
