Freeths launches family law division in the North West

National law firm Freeths has launched a family law offering in the North West with the appointment of Partner Natalie Dickson and Senior Associate Antonia Williamson in Liverpool. Both Natalie and Antonia join from Brabners.

The team brings a combined 20 years’ experience specialising in divorce, financial settlements on divorce, child arrangements, relocation, wealth protection agreements (including pre-nuptial and cohabitation agreements), as well as disputes arising from cohabiting relationships and financial provision for children.

Natalie has a particular focus on cases with high-net-worth individuals such as sports and media personalities, owners of landed estates with inherited and dynastic wealth, business owners, trusts, directors, lottery winners and members of the judiciary.

The newly established team will bolster Freeths’ well-established national family offering and help continue to grow the practice regionally.

Commenting on Natalie’s appointment, Andy Nichol, Managing Partner of Freeths Liverpool, said: “I’m hugely proud of our team here in Liverpool and Natalie and Antonia are the perfect addition to our Freeths offering here in the City. I look forward to seeing our new service line flourish.”

Mark Keely, Partner and Joint Head of Private Client Services at Freeths, continued: “Our national family team are renowned for the outstanding work it undertakes for clients across the UK and this strategic hiring will only strengthen our services with further, comprehensive capabilities.”

Natalie said: “Freeths is such a prestigious and well-respected firm celebrating continued record year-on-year growth and I’m excited to be part of its future. Being Liverpool born and bred, it’s great to have the chance to establish this family law offering across the North West and continue the incredible growth of the office.”

Antonia Williamson added: “I am delighted to be part of Natalie’s newly established Liverpool family team. Freeths is an esteemed national firm which is known for its impressive client base and innovative culture. The Liverpool office has a well-established and thriving Real Estate team, in addition to a growing Environmental practice. It is really exciting to be part of the firm’s expanding family law offering. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be part of Freeths’ development in this wonderful city.”
