Commenting on her appointment, Emily Brand said: “Winckworth Sherwood has a first class reputation in family law and is known for achieving outstanding results for its clients. The firm is an excellent fit with my own experience and I look forward to contributing to its ongoing success.”
Carol Ellinas, partner and head of Winckworth Sherwood’s Family team said: “Emily is a very talented and dedicated family lawyer. We are confident our clients will also be delighted that she has joined our team.”
