Family law firm expands team

By SuperEditor May13,2024

Specialist family law firm Lake Legal is supporting its growth plans with the appointment of Isabella O’Donoghue as a litigation executive.

Isabella joins the firm from Barnes Clark Family Law. She will complete her chartered legal executive status at Lake Legal.

Commenting on her new role, Isabella said: “Lake Legal has a fantastic reputation in the region, and the firm has a great track record at developing young lawyers. I look forward to working with the team and supporting clients.”

The Leeds-based firm recently marked 15 years in business with a record turnover and an increase in the number of divorce cases it managed for high-net-worth individuals.

Lake Legal supports clients in a wide range of family law, from advising on pre-nuptial agreements to advising on issues arising from separation and divorce. It also has a fast-growing arbitration practice, headed by Lyn Ayrton, the founder of Lake Legal. Arbitration allows couples who are going through a separation or divorce to have their differences settled in a more flexible and usually quicker way than in a courtroom.

Claire Glaister, managing partner of Lake Legal, said: “Isabella is a talented lawyer, and we’re pleased to welcome her to Lake Legal. The firm continues to go from strength to strength thanks to our team’s commitment and hard work.”

In the industry bibles, Chambers & Partners and Legal 500, Lake Legal has consistently been ranked in the top tier, while Lyn and Claire are singled out for their expertise in family law. Lyn is one of only a handful of solicitors in the region qualified to arbitrate cases.
