Manches LLP has promoted senior associate Eva Huckle to the partnership with effect from 1 July 2009. Eva's appointment brings the number of Manches family partners to 14, making it the largest family law practice in the country.
Eva, who is regarded as one of the rising stars of family law, joined Manches in January 2006, together with the rest of the family finance team from Reynolds Porter Chamberlain.
Known for her fresh approach to family law, Eva has been involved in a number of high profile cases, including the record breaking case of Re: C (A Child: Financial Provision) where an unmarried mother, bringing an application on behalf of her child, secured a record level of financial provision.
Whilst Eva is experienced in all aspects of divorce and family law, she has a particular focus on high value work, including those cases with an international dimension and speaks fluent German.
Eva qualified as a collaborative lawyer in 2007, adding another dimension to the service she can offer her clients.
Jane Craig, Head of Family Department, London commented: "We are delighted to welcome Eva to the partnership. Her promotion is testament to the firm's commitment to spot and nurture talent from within our ranks and to consolidate our position as the market leader in family law."
