Solicitor SARAH CRILLY has joined Ward Hadaway's family law team.

The 31-year-old has specialised in family law for six years with Dickinson Dees and has developed expertise in the financial aspects of family law.

Her experience is boosted by an accreditation in insolvency and pensions. She is one of only three lawyers in England and Wales with the qualification.

Head of family law at Ward Hadaway, Tim Scott, said: "Sarah has sound experience of dealing with clients in this sensitive area and her financial expertise and qualifications will bolster the team's service to clients even further."

Ms Crilly said: "I am thrilled to be part of a business recognised as the fastest growing law firm in the region and look forward to being part of the firm's success story as the family law team goes from strength to strength."
