Jones Myers marks further expansion to meet growing demand

Our niche family law firm Jones Myers – which has offices in Leeds, Harrogate and York – is continuing our team expansion to meet growing demand.

Our practice, which has retained its joint top tier position in the Legal 500 UK and Chambers UK rankings for over two decades, has appointed solicitor Benjamin Pitman.

Benjamin has worked in all areas of family law including divorce, financial settlements, pre and post nuptial agreements and children matters. He is also experienced in cases involving family businesses and property abroad and has acted on behalf of high net worth individuals.

Applauded by the latest Legal 500 UK guide for our ‘reputation for excellence’ and by the Chambers UK 2020 guide for our ‘exemplary professional standards’ the expertise of our lawyers includes collaborative experts, in house barrister Andrew Fox and founder Peter Jones – a former deputy judge.

Said Andrew: “Benjamin’s experience complements our team’s expertise and we warmly welcome him on board. Attracting and retaining top talent remains a top priority and Benjamin’s appointment coincides with an increase in instructions from our local, national and international clients.” 

The team expansion is the latest in a series of developments in a decisive year in which we have further boosted our team at our Harrogate office and expanded our Children Team.  

Earlier this year we launched an office in York with a three-strong team headed by partner Nicki Mitchell, a collaboratively trained lawyer and expert in the financial aspects of relationship breakdown and particularly complex cases.

Additional milestones have seen Close Brothers Asset Management again include our firm in its Top Family Law Firms for 2019. We are also ranked for the second consecutive year in the eprivate Top Family Law Firms national guide which recognises and promotes excellence and best practice in the sector.
