Harrogate Family Law has strengthened its leadership team with the promotion of two of its solicitors to partner level.

Emma Doughty and Laura Mounsey will support managing director and founder Andrew Meehan and partner Carol Jessop as the firm prepares to develop its services and expand its team.

Emma joined the firm in 2016 and has particular experience in dealing with challenging behaviour in relationships, including coercive control.

Laura is a former BPP Law School Cohen scholar who has worked her way up through the firm from trainee solicitor to partner.

Andrew Meehan said: “We are very pleased to have been able to nurture Emma and Laura’s careers and create opportunities for bright emerging talent in the legal sector.

“Emma and Laura encapsulate the Harrogate Family Law ethos of empathy and approachability combined with technical excellence and they will be a huge asset to our senior team.”

Andrew added that the firm was now poised for growth as it prepares to mark its tenth anniversary this year.

He said: “Since launching in the autumn of 2010 we have worked hard to establish ourselves as Harrogate’s leading family law firm, with a reputation for compassion and consistently high rankings in Chambers UK and Legal 500, year on year.

“Emma and Laura’s success puts us in an excellent position to build on these achievements.”
