Local solicitor Nicholas Longford will be elected as Chair of Resolution at its annual conference in Bristol this weekend.

Mr Longford, a partner at Rustons and Lloyd in Newmarket, will head the national organisation, which represents over 5500 members, for a year.

"With the economic downturn now putting families under more and more strain and family law rarely out of the headlines, this is an important time to become Chair of Resolution" says Mr Longford.

"Resolution's members are committed to a non-confrontational approach to divorce and separation as the vast majority of people don't want a nasty and expensive fight with their former partner. We have long campaigned for the introduction of 'no fault' divorce, for legal rights for cohabiting couples, and for legal aid to be available to vulnerable families. As a self confessed family man, I am passionately committed to these causes and delighted to be chairing Resolution at a time when these issues are high on the political agenda."

Brought up in Ely, Mr Longford has been a member of Rustons and Lloyd solicitors for over thirty years. He has considerable expertise in the fields of domestic abuse and the law relating to children and is an accredited specialist - Resolution's highest accolade - in these areas. Having become involved in Resolution in the 1980s he rose through the organisation's ranks of the Cambridge and West Suffolk group and then moved onto its National Committee in 2005.

At its national conference this weekend, it is expected that Resolution will call on the government to help take the blame out of divorce and separation by introducing no-fault divorce.
