Further expansion for Simpson Millar family law team with Cardiff appointment

National law firm Simpson Millar has furthered its ambitious expansion plans with the appointment of Lowri Walters to its family law team.

An experienced solicitor and fluent in Welsh, Lowri joins the firm’s Cardiff office from Morgan La Roche where she has spent five years supporting its traditionally commercial client base with advice on complex family law issues.

Bolstering the firm’s ‘national network of top-quality lawyers’, as well as its private client offering across the country, the latest appointment is reflective of Simpson Millar’s ambitions to ‘open’ up the law to make it easier for people to get legal help and support when they need it.

Commenting on the expansion David Lister, Partner and National Head of the Family Law team, said: “Our framework for growth in 2021 aligns very much with the firm’s overall evolution strategy. Our collective aim is to be the people-centred legal solution provider of choice.

“We want to make the law less complicated and to open up the process of separation and family breakdown. Finding lawyers who can do that, alongside being technically excellent, is key.

“The people we are bringing on board, such as Lowri, and those due to arrive in the coming months, have shown that they can deliver more – both from a technical legal perspective, but also from a personable perspective – making what they and the existing team offer inimitable.”

Commenting on her new role at Simpson Millar, Lowri said: “Before Covid, family lawyers were limited by geography and office location.  In turn, so were clients.  Simpson Millar’s flexible and far-reaching model tells me that the firm focusses on what it’s lawyers can do, not where they can do it from.

“For me, they are ahead of the curve. Not only has it opened up a gateway for me to join a multimillion-pound national law firm, but it also opens the doorway for clients to get the best possible advice, wherever they are in the UK.”
