Introducing a new member of the family team!

With the pressures on families ever increasing, Leeds Day has decided to meet the growing need for advice, support and representation by expanding its family team with the appointment of specialist solicitor, Grace Brass.

Grace has spent the majority of her career practising in Cambridgeshire and is pleased to be returning to the area.

Grace joined Leeds Day in August 2013 and brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience in family law with a particular emphasis on divorce and financial issues. Grace frequently represents high net worth individuals where cases involve trusts, inherited wealth, pensions and business related assets. Grace provides advice regarding cohabitation agreements, pre and post nuptial agreements to couples who wish to protect their assets before embarking upon a marriage, civil partnership or cohabitation, ensuring that they have all of the information required to make appropriate decisions.  Grace also advises parents, grandparents and other relatives in relation to the arrangements for children (contact and residence) and removal from the jurisdiction.

Grace is joining a team dedicated to finding and offering clients alternative ways of dispute resolution, focusing on achieving positive outcomes that are agreeable to everyone, particularly when there are children involved. Lisa Leader, a member of Resolution is based in the St Ives office whilst Simon Thomas, based in the St Neots office is further qualified to offer the fast growing collaborative law approach to family breakdown. Simon is also personally mentioned in the prestigious Legal 500 as providing ‘excellent support and advice’, and is noted for his ‘sensitive approach’. (2013 Legal 500).  Leeds Day is the only firm locally that is able to offer family advice to clients in Huntingdon, St Neots and St Ives.

Leeds Day is committed to working flexibly around the client and therefore does not expect its clients to take time off work to come into the office. In order to accommodate the needs of clients the family department will now offer late night appointments on a Wednesday evening at our Huntingdon office, the only firm locally to offer this service.

Commenting on Grace’s appointment, Simon Thomas, head of the family law team, said: “ the addition of Grace to our well established team will add further depth to a practice which is well respected in the area.  Grace’s arrival signals continuing growth of the firm and our ambition to provide an excellent service to our clients.  Grace’s background and experience in family law will significantly increase our client offering and we are delighted to have her on board.”
