We are delighted to announce that Anita Shepherd has been promoted to partner in our Family team.
Anita joined the firm in 2012 and works out of the Manchester and Glossop offices. She handles all aspects of family law and is also a Resolution Advanced Accredited Specialist with a focus on domestic abuse and advanced financial provision. Before qualifying, Anita studied Applied Social Studies at Sheffield Hallam University and she then completed her Legal Practice Course at Manchester Metropolitan University.
Kate Oldfield – managing partner – said: “Since arriving at Davis Blank Furniss, Anita has made a huge impact; her drive, enthusiasm, rapport and knowledge of the law have all helped to grow the team so her promotion is much deserved and is a clear reflection of her talent.”
Anita added: “The last four years have been a period of growth for me as Kate and the partnership have allowed me to grow my work in my own way. That level of autonomy has really inspired me. Becoming a partner is – of course – a milestone in my career, but my focus is now on adding more value to the business and our clients.”
The firm has also promoted Jennifer Smith to associate in the Property team and Kirsty Morbey to associate in the Family team. Whilst Edward Moss has been appointed as a clinical negligence and professional negligence solicitor following the successful completion of his training contract
