Hanne & Co Solicitors appoint new Head of Family Law

Hanne & Co Solicitors appoints Emma Baillie as Head of Family Law.

Emma Baillie joins Hanne & Co from TV Edwards where she was Joint Head of Family Law. At Hanne & Co, Emma will hold overall responsibility for all finance and private law children cases conducted at the firm.

Hanne & Co who celebrated their 125th anniversary last year, are a firm that prides themselves on their legal ability whilst continuing to evolve and enhance its services.

The appointment of Emma further strengthens the family team, bringing a fresh perspective and experience in complex financial and property matters involving high-income households and substantial assets, as well as navigating disputes relating to children.

In her personal practice Emma leads on highly complex cases often involving intricate company structures and investment portfolios. Emma’s arrival follows the successful tenure of Susan Harlow and Liz Francis who over the last 40 years have grown the team from the two of them running a small legal aid department to what you see today.

Moreover, Hanne & Co Solicitors recently expanded with the opening of a new office in Chancery Lane.

Emma’s leadership, combined with the firm’s enduring legacy and recent milestones, positions Hanne & Co Solicitors as a leading force in family law.

Emma Baillie, said:

“Hanne & Co has a justifiable reputation as a firm that cultivates fantastic lawyers and has a wonderful Family Law team. I am delighted to be joining them to build on so many recent successes. We share a commitment to providing clear and compassionate support to clients, so our values align extremely well. The breadth of services provided to individuals and their businesses means the firm can offer specialist, bespoke support across the range of their legal needs, which is a key advantage for the clients I work with.

I am passionate about mentoring and supporting my team members which not only benefits junior lawyers through experience and coaching but also ensures clients receive a highly personal approach with proportionate fees. I look forward to leading a collaborative team and contributing to continued success.”

Liz Francis, Managing Partner commented:

“We are thrilled to welcome Emma to our team as our new Head of Family Law. Her extensive experience and unique approach make her an invaluable asset to our firm. We are confident that Emma will contribute significantly to the continued success and growth of our family practice.

As Hanne & Co Solicitors looks towards the future, the firm remains committed to delivering exceptional legal services, building on its reputation, and ensuring positive outcomes for clients during challenging times.”
