Niche law firm Consilia Legal, which opened a specialist mediation division in Harrogate earlier this year, has expanded its team with the appointment of Melanie Webb.
Melanie, an experienced family solicitor, joins from Simpson Millar where she was an associate solicitor specialising in complex matrimonial finance and private children’s cases.
Sally Clark, director of Consilia Mediation in Harrogate, said Melanie’s appointment would support the ongoing development of Consilia’s family law work in Harrogate and Leeds.
Sally said: Melanie’s personality and the dynamic approach to her work will be a perfect fit within our team and we are very excited about the potential that Melanie’s offering will bring to the expansion of our firm.
We are delighted to have the benefit of Melanie’s creative and pragmatic approach to all areas of relationship breakdown and pre-marriage financial planning.
Melanie was a recommended lawyer in the Legal 500 in 2016, with the guide making special mention of her ability to negotiate strong settlements.
Melanie said: I am pleased to be joining an expanding team which has a growing presence in Yorkshire with the opening of a family mediation practice in Harrogate earlier this year.
