Neil joins the team from a Lincoln-based practice and, with more than 20 years’ experience as a specialist divorce lawyer; he will be responsible for growing the services and client base of the family team specifically in Nottinghamshire.
He said: “I’m thrilled to join the Roythornes team; the firm is at a really exciting stage of development. Seeing a local firm make such an impact for clients across the country is impressive and the main impetus behind my move.
“The challenge of developing the family law offering in Nottingham is really exciting and something to get my teeth into. My focus will be on building relationships with larger organisations so that they know where they can send their clients or staff for clear and practical advice. After all, family law is relevant to almost everyone at some point.”
Roythornes is a top 200 law firm with strategically located offices in Alconbury, Nottingham, Peterborough and Spalding. With particular expertise in private client, agriculture, food and property sectors it has been listed as one of the 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain by the London Stock Exchange twice in both 2017 and 2018.
Vember Mortlock, managing director at Roythornes, added: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Neil to the team as he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge. He has written a number of books and spoken internationally about the conflict and collaboration of family law so it is a real coup to have him join Roythornes.
“This is a time of real growth for us and we are currently looking for strategic recruits across all our offices. Neil’s appointment will really help us to meet our ambitious plans.”
