Commenting on the appointment, partner Lenore Rice said: “Ciara is formidable in her efforts and commitment to her clients. She has earned great respect internally from her team and I, from her clients, but also from her professional peers.
“Recently our family law team has undergone innovative improvements which help us optimise delivery and streamline legal processes, along with engaging in pivotal business development opportunities. Ciara has actively welcomed and supported these changes, implementing them in the team and has shown strong performance and leadership qualities.
“We’re exceptionally proud of Ciara and all of her achievements. She is a very talented individual. We know she will continue to bring fresh ideas to the team, which make a real impact for our clients and our firm. Ciara’s promotion to director level is well deserved and recognises her significant contributions over recent years.”
