Family lawyer Emma Jamison returns from London to join Belfast-based MKB Law
Belfast-based MKB Law has announced the appointment of Emma Jamison to the position of associate director within the family law department.
Ms Jamison joins Anne Marie Kelly, head of the department and one of the founding partners of the firm, alongside colleagues Aine Toner, associate director, and Aoife McCann, solicitor.
Originally from Belfast, Ms Jamison moved to England in 2007 to pursue her legal studies at the University of Liverpool and the University of Law in London.
She has worked exclusively in family and matrimonial law, firstly as a trainee and then as a solicitor at top-ranked family law firms. During this time, she regularly dealt with complex and high net worth disputes often with an international element, offshore assets and trusts. Her clients included royalty and high-profile athletes.
During her time in London, Ms Jamison was also a member of the YRes committee, a group dedicated to ensuring junior family law professionals can share experiences and develop their skills in a supportive environment, and a volunteer legal advisor at the Rights of Women, which ensures women are aware of, and have access to, their full legal rights.
Commenting on her appointment, Ms Jamison said: “Having practiced in London for a number of years with some leading law firms, I am delighted to return back to Northern Ireland as I begin the next chapter in my legal career.
“I was keen to join a firm with not only an exceptional reputation but one that places their staff at the heart of their business – and I am very happy to have found that in MKB Law.”
Ms Kelly added: “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Emma to the team at MKB Law. Emma’s exceptional knowledge and expertise will further strengthen our Family Law department and our management team at a time of confident expansion for the company.”
