Niche Yorkshire law firm Harrogate Family Law has strengthened its team with the appointment of solicitor Pippa Hayden.
Ms Hayden joins from national firm Irwin Mitchell Solicitors in Leeds where she was a solicitor in the family department.
She will work alongside managing director Andrew Meehan, who is chairman of Resolution in West and North Yorkshire and a recognised specialist in dealing with complex high net worth divorces.

The quality of work handled by the firm and its client focussed approach attracted me to the position and I am looking forward to being part of the team.

Mr Meehan said:
Pippa’s experience in a number of specialist areas of law, including issues affecting same sex couples, will help us widen our expertise as a firm and support our plans for continued growth.
