Bircham Dyson Bell has launched a new family group to service its growing private client list with a combination of media and family law advice.
Lead employment partner Sian Jones will head the new group, which aims to coordinate Bircham's departments as a response to a number of high-value cases requiring more than one specialism.
Jones said: "One of our clients called us after appearing in Hello! magazine. We started the programme at the beginning of the year and are finding more clients wanting services that are spread across the firm, including property, trusts and prenuptials."
Bircham's matrimonial law capability has been a "strong suit" for years said Jones, noting that the new group will continue to work closely with the communications team to ensure that clients who receive "unwarranted" press interference receive proper advice and support.
