Belfast-based MKB Law has announced the promotion of three solicitors to associate director.

Residential property specialist Emma Smyth, family law solicitor Áine Toner, and corporate and commercial property expert Lynsey Henderson have been promoted in response to increased demand for services.

Ms Smyth joined MKB Law as a trainee and qualified as a solicitor in 2018. Highly experienced in property law, she has been instrumental in growing the residential property side of the firm’s services, particularly residential property developments.

She said: “I am delighted to become an Associate Director with such a respected law firm. MKB Law has invested in me and helped me develop my career in property law. I look forward to building further strong relationships with our clients and finding solutions to their legal needs.”

A specialist in family law, Ms Toner joined MKB Law in 2018. She has considerable experience in advising clients in relation to divorce and financial settlements, as well as expertise in international agreements and those involving company interests and family businesses. She is also a member of the specialist Children Order Panel.

Ms Toner said: “My focus is understanding clients’ needs and producing the best possible outcomes for all concerned. I welcome the opportunity to bring my experience and expertise to this role.”

Ms Henderson joined the firm six years ago as PA to the managing director, later going on to train as a solicitor and qualifying in 2019. She now specialises in corporate law and commercial property transactions, acting for some of the leading property investors in Northern Ireland.

She said: “I am absolutely thrilled to begin this new chapter of my career as an associate director specialising in corporate law and commercial property. I believe the skills and experience that I have gained in my practice areas will help MKB Law continue on their exceptional growth trajectory by continuing to attract new clients within the commercial sector.”

Welcoming the appointments, managing director Gordon McElroy said: “Our firm is only as strong as its people, and these are exceptional people. These appointments are a clear sign of MKB Law’s confidence in its staff and our commitment to our clients.

“Our enviable reputation for quality and our expertise in providing a full services solution means demand for our services is growing as more and more clients seek us out.

“Our three talented and motivated new associate directors will further strengthen our senior management team at a time of confident expansion.”
