A lawyer with over a decade of experience acting for high net worth clients in complex divorce cases has joined Royds Withy King in Bath as a partner.
Will MacFarlane specialises in complex financial settlements on divorce, acting for clients with significant assets including businesses, offshore trusts, investments, properties and pensions located in the UK and internationally.
Originally from Dorset, Will joins Royds Withy King from top ranked London firm, Withers LLP. Speaking about his appointment Will said: “I am excited to be returning home to the West Country to join such a forward-thinking firm. Royds Withy King is clearly ambitious but has retained its friendly and collegiate working culture. I am impressed by the firm’s commitment to corporate social responsibility and to local charities such as Bath Mind and I am very much looking forward to getting involved.”
Will continued: “I want to be the go-to family lawyer for high net worth clients in Bath, Bristol and throughout the South West. My practice will provide them with London quality expertise and client service, but at more reasonable rates.”
Richard Ellis, Head of the Family team, said: “We are delighted to welcome Will. His appointment strengthens our experienced Family law team and enables us to continue to offer a high quality level of divorce advice to our clients that have complicated finances and family circumstances.”
Will joins a team of 13 experienced solicitors and partners that has been top ranked by independent legal directories Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500. He, like the other members of his new team, is a member of Resolution, an association of family lawyers committed to resolving disputes in a non-confrontational way.
