We welcome solicitor Lisa Churchill to our Northampton matrimonial team this month.
She joins the team to deal with divorce and separation cases involving complex financial issues including Armed Forces and Public Sector pensions and business and farming assets. She also has significant experience and an outstanding track record in contentious child arrangements matters including internal relocation and parental alienation.
Lisa qualified as a solicitor 11 years ago. She has spent most of her career in Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire law firms, where she was a member of Cambridge and District Law Society and Chair of YRes. She continues to be a member of Resolution and adheres to their highly regarded Resolution Code of Practice which aims, where possible, to minimise conflict between parties.
Helen Derry, Partner and Head of Family Law at the firm said
“Lisa combines exceptional technical knowledge of the law with astute advocacy and negotiation skills which make her an excellent fit for the firm’s matrimonial clients. She joins a very strong team in Northampton who are going from strength to strength since we opened the practice there in 2018. The results they are achieving in not only matrimonial matters but complex care proceedings and domestic abuse matters already puts them among the highest quality lawyers in the area.”
“I am excited to join as prestigious and progressive a firm as Sills and Betteridge and its highly regarded Family team. Like them, I am committed to guiding clients through the inevitable stress of relationship breakdown in a practical and empathetic way.”
Sills & Betteridge Family Team are currently in the ‘Top Tier’ of firms independently recognised by the Legal 500 (The World’s Leading Legal Directory) and were recently nominated for Family Law Firm of The Year [Midlands & Wales] in the Lexis Nexis Family Law Awards.
