Welcome to a new family law partner and litigation executive

03 October 2019

We have recently appointed a new partner and a litigation executive, expanding our family law and dispute resolution teams.

An experienced family lawyer and collaborative practitioner, Sharon Giles joins as partner to lead the firm’s divorce and family law team, from a specialist family law practice in the South West. Sharon has been ranked in prestigious independent guide The Legal 500 for her skilled approach and is a member of Resolution family law.

Michelle Vandekleut has been appointed as a litigation executive, assisting both commercial clients and individuals as part of the firm’s leading litigation & dispute resolution team.

The news comes as Willans has secured another strong set of rankings in the 2020 edition of The Legal 500, an independent guide to the best law firms across the South West. 11 of the firm’s departments are recommended, with the employment law team securing a top-tier ranking and a double-digit number of lawyers across the firm individually recommended.

Managing partner Bridget Redmond commented: “We are delighted to welcome Sharon and Michelle to the firm.

“Sharon brings with her extensive expertise and a strong reputation in the field of family law, and she will help take the team from strength to strength.

“Michelle also has a strong track record in dispute resolution and will help to serve the demands of our growing client base”.

Willans LLP acts for individuals, businesses and not-for-profit organisations based locally, nationally and internationally, and employs around 80 people across multiple offices in Imperial Square, Cheltenham.
