Wards grows its Cohabitation team with new appointment
Wards Solicitors has appointed Solicitor Chloe King to its disputes team.
Chloe will be based in the firm’s Bristol office and will be advising clients on all areas relating to cohabitation, such as preparing and advising on separation agreements and property related disputes when unmarried couples break up.
She will also act for clients in court in cases that cannot be resolved outside of the court process, where parties are unable to agree how a property is to be dealt with, for instance if it is to be sold or not, or the share of proceeds they should receive.
Since qualifying as a solicitor in 2017, Chloe has specialised in family law and has a wealth of experience in matters arising from relationship breakdown, including divorce and dissolution of civil partnerships, cohabitation disputes, financial settlements, pre and post nuptial agreements and cases relating to children. Chloe joins Wards from Clarke Wilmott where she worked in the firm’s family law team. She is a member of Resolution, a professional organisation of family lawyers who work to resolve issues in a constructive, non-confrontational way.
Commenting, head of Wards’ Disputes team Elizabeth Fry said: “We are thrilled to welcome Chloe to the Wards’ team. Her experience will be a great asset to our department and to the firm as a whole.”
Prior to Clarke Willmott, Chloe worked for Bristol based law firm Bobbetts Mackan Solicitors.
