A West Midlands law firm has secured the services of an expert in family law.

Quality Solicitors Talbots, which employs 180 people across seven local offices, has appointed Paul Furnival to lead the firm’s family law offer.

The experienced specialist’s remit is to grow the firm’s “fixed fee” service that is looking to help clients offset the abolition of Legal Aid by providing affordable legal advice to achieve the best resolutions.

His client base will be with the firm’s high net worth individuals on a host of issues from prenuptial agreements and arrangements for children to divorce and financial settlements

“This is a very exciting move and a chance to join an independent firm that is determined to change the way families access the advice they need,” said Mr Furnival, who graduated from Chester College of Law and has spent the last nine years at his own firm

Mr Furnival has experience in financial remedy cases, including high net worth cases involving some of the UK’s biggest law firms in London and beyond.

He has secured several multi-million pound settlements for his clients and conducted several divorce, financial and children cases with an international element.
