Leading Surrey Family Law firm expands with merger
Leading Surrey-based law firm Barlow Robbins has expanded its Family Law practice with the acquisition of Hendersons Solicitors.
The merger is effective as of 1 March, with former head of Hendersons, Lynn Henderson, joining as a consultant in Barlow Robbins’ family team.
A spokesperson for Barlow Robbins said that Ms Henderson specialises in all aspects of private family law, with particular emphasis on the financial consequences of relationship breakdowns – including cases where there are substantial assets, trusts, pensions and family businesses.
“Lynn also has experience resolving disputes regarding children and supporting parties in family law arbitration cases,” the firm added.
In her new role at Barlow Robbins, she will also continue to oversee and retain responsibility for the relationship of her existing clients, while being supported by the firm’s now ten-strong family practice.
Barlow Robbins’ family law team is top-ranked by both Legal 500 and Chambers legal directories. The firm has also been commended and recommended for its Private Client work by The Times Best Law Firm Guide.
Partner and Head of Family at Barlow Robbins, Judith Ball, said:
“The relationship between Barlow Robbins and Hendersons goes back many years – and Lynn’s breadth of experience in family law very much aligns with our existing local offering and areas of expertise.
“The integration of Lynn into the Barlow Robbins team will provide Hendersons’ existing clients with a significantly enhanced team of specialists and advisors, with the expertise to meet a much wider range of client needs – from tax and property, to probate and disputes.”
Lynn Henderson added:
"Barlow Robbins is known for its commitment to excellence, culture, and absolute dedication to client service – and the synergies between the two practices made this partnership a natural choice.
“I look forward to this exciting new chapter and working alongside Judith and the team.”
The company offers legal advice on Children and Family Law – as well as Divorce, Separation and Financial Issues.
