New partner for leading family law team


The family law team at HCR is celebrating promotions – James Osborne (a Worcester Warriors Sterling Member) becomes a partner in the Worcester team and is joined by several others moving up the ladder – Shereen Chohan (Birmingham), Fiona Davies (Cheltenham) and Lauren Nash (Hereford) become senior associates, while James Shorrock (Cheltenham) becomes an associate.

The team, now 61-strong across the firm’s nine offices, has been in the forefront of taking divorce online – because of its size and the number of consent orders it files, HCR was asked to take part in the pilot scheme to enable people to apply for and process their divorce online, cutting waiting times. The pilot was run by the Courts and Tribunal Service for the Ministry of Justice as part of the wider process of taking divorce online.

The promotions come as the firm continues to grow across the board – Paul Grundy in the restructuring and insolvency team becomes a legal director, as do Annabel Hull and Maureen O’Regan from the real estate team and Peter Orton from the employment team. Jodie Boston from the dispute resolution team becomes a senior associate.

Harrison Clark Rickerbys has more than 550 staff and partners based at offices in Birmingham, Cambridge, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Hereford, London, Thames Valley, Worcester, and the Wye Valley, who provide a complete spectrum of legal services to both business and private clients, regionally and nationwide. The firm also has a number of highly specialist sector-specific teams, including technology, finance and financial services, defence, security and the forces, health and social care, education, agricultural and rural affairs, and construction.
