Gemma steps up to lead the Family Team

A law firm’s Family Team has a new face at the helm – but she’s already well-known in the local area.

Gemma Himsworth has stepped up to lead the team at Martin-Kaye Solicitors in Euston Way, Telford, having worked in the sector for over 12 years, with the past three years spent working for the local firm.

“I’m absolutely delighted to take up this promotion and I’m so proud to have been given the opportunity to lead such a dynamic and effective department,” said Mrs Himsworth.

“Between us we have a great deal of experience and you’d be hard pressed to find a situation that we have not encountered before, so we’re perfectly placed to help families through the most difficult and stressful of times.”

Mrs Himsworth specialises in divorce and financial issues surrounding separation, particularly those involving businesses or pensions. She also deals with complex matters involving children, including issues of residence and contact, as well as disputes about parentage.

“As a team, we are always striving to achieve the very best possible outcome for our clients and we give sensible, grounded advice that is both practical and pragmatic. We’re also leading the way when it comes to fees too as we offer comprehensive fixed fee packages for a lot of the work we do, and we were one of the first local firms to introduce such a policy.

“This means there are no nasty surprises for clients once a case begins, and they have a clear picture of exactly what the advice we offer will cost.”

Mrs Himsworth said the team had wide-ranging experience of dealing with clients from all backgrounds, and they also work closely with the firm’s other departments – such as corporate commercial – if clients have business interests that need to be protected during divorce or separation proceedings.

Senior Partner Graham Davies said: “We’re very pleased to see Gemma stepping into a leading role with the Family team, and her promotion is a direct result of the dedication and commitment she has shown during her time with us at Martin-Kaye.”
