Belfast firm Millar McCall Wylie has strengthened its family and matrimonial offering with the strategic hire of former barrister, Clare Lenaghan. Operating at the Bar for more than 25 years, she has now qualified as a solicitor.
Ms Lenaghan joins the Belfast firm as head of family and matrimonial, and will lead its established family law team. She will work alongside longstanding litigation partner Caroline Prunty.
Ms Prunty said: “As a well-respected barrister, we have been very fortunate to have worked closely with Clare for many years. She brings a wealth of experience and advocacy skills that give our team the edge when it comes to advising and representing clients in the local market.”
She added that the appointment formed part of the firm’s strategic growth plan for 2019 and beyond.
Ms Lenaghan commented that she looked forward to helping build the firm’s “growing and enviable reputation in family law in Northern Ireland”.
