Ashfords continues expansion with new appointments
National and international law firm Ashfords LLP has expanded its family law team in Taunton.
The firm has announced the appointment of solicitor Imogen Powell in the firm's family team. Ms Powell was previously a trainee solicitor at Stephens Scown LLP and qualified in family law in November 2018.
Ashfords said that the new appointment strengthened the firm’s private client offering.
“She has experience within the family department, providing extensive support to the team,” said the firm.
“Imogen has a particular interest in divorce, children and ancillary relief matters – and is passionate about helping families and individuals in distress.”
Partner and Head of the Family Team at Ashfords LLP, Zoe Porter, added:
“We are pleased to welcome Imogen to the family team – our Taunton office has been developing the family team since the appointment of Partner Jayne Turner earlier this year and Imogen will be a great addition.”
Imogen Powell said:
“I am absolutely thrilled to be offered a position as solicitor working within the family team at Ashfords.
“Ashfords has such a great reputation – and I can't wait to get fully on board and start helping individuals and families through some of the most difficult times of their lives, as well as contributing to the ongoing success of the firm.”
Ashfords LLP offers legal services to both business and private clients and has a global presence, with offices in France, Belgium and Denmark, as well as the Russian Federation, Colombia, Brazil, Mexico and worldwide.
In November, Ashfords also announced an increased presence in the EMEA region through an association with Israeli firm Zelichov, Ben-Dan & Co, with whom Ashfords has been working for more than ten years. The firm is one of the leading defendant firms in Israel, specialising in medical malpractice.
Ashfords has also recently made new appointments to its construction and infrastructure team and the real estate team in its Bristol office in the UK.
