Manches Thames Valley is delighted to announce the return of Kerry Fretwell as a partner in Manches family law team in Reading.
Kerry returns to Manches from Reading firm Blandy & Blandy, having worked for Manches for 13 years in their London office. She was one of the first family lawyers in the UK to train as a collaborative lawyer and was involved in setting up the London Collaborative Family Law group and later the Reading Collaborative Family Law group.
She is a member of Resolution's training committee and has organised conferences and training courses for other family lawyers and lectured to over 400 family judges at their judicial training. She has also written numerous articles for legal journals.
Kerry brings with her a wealth of experience in all aspects of family law, specialising in mid-to-high value ancillary relief, children's cases and collaborative law. Kerry said: "I'm thrilled to be part of the new Thames Valley Family Law team and look forward to working closely with my colleagues in Oxford and London".
Jane Mitchell, Partner and Head of the Family Law team added: "We are delighted that Kerry is returning to Manches. This is an exciting opportunity to develop further our practice in the Thames Valley. We expect to see some new challenges in family law and with our expanding team we are very well placed to meet them".
