Law firm Howes Percival has appointed family law expert Sally Harris as a director.

Harris, who has specialised in family law for nearly 30 years, joins from Steeles Law where she was a partner and head of the family law team.  

She is focused predominantly on financial remedy cases, with long experience in private law Children Act proceedings. She regularly advises on post and prenup agreements. 

Harris is a member of Resolution and a trained collaborative lawyer. 

Justine Flack, a partner and head of Howes Percival's family law department, commented: 'We pride ourselves on recruiting experienced, hands-on professionals and giving clients direct access to those senior experts.  So, I'm delighted to welcome Sally to the firm.  She is highly regarded, and in addition to bringing extensive experience, she has strong technical skills and a great reputation for her work.  

'We continue to experience increased demand for family law services. Many people have re-evaluated their relationships during the pandemic and we are now seeing this referred to as a direct cause of the breakdown. More couples are choosing to live together, so advice about co-habitation agreements is also on the increase. This involves us being able to take a holistic approach by working with our colleagues in private client and property. Likewise, more people are seeing the benefit of pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements. While the nature of the work constantly changes, assisting high-net worth individuals in divorce proceedings with complex assets is still the core of our work.'
