Shropshire-based family law expert Liz Davies has joined Woolley & Co solicitors as the firm continues to expand.

Her arrival at the Midland firm brings the tally of senior level family lawyers to 20, working from home offices across the Midlands, London, South, South West and Wales.

Ms Davies, who is based near Ludlow serving clients across the region, said: “I have deliberately specialised in matrimonial law from the start of my career. I really like the variety and getting to know the individuals involved.

“It is inevitably an extremely emotional time for a client if they are going through a divorce or separation.

“Working as a lawyer in this area means you have to offer so much more than just expert legal advice.”

Andrew Woolley, managing partner of Woolley & Co, said he was delighted to have someone of Ms Davies’s calibre joining the team.

He said: “The firm is going from strength to strength and are attracting high level, experienced lawyers to expand the business at a time when many firms are struggling,” said Mr Woolley, who founded the firm in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1996.

“Liz further enhances our team and I am looking forward to working with her.”
