Cheshire solicitors firm grows with new family law lawyer

Lauren Soutar Solicitor
November 29, 2021

A leading Warrington law firm has strengthened its growing family department with the recruitment of a new solicitor.

Lauren Soutar joins Watsons Solicitors from a fellow Cheshire-based firm, bringing the total number in the family department to four full-time solicitors.

A graduate of the University of Liverpool, Lauren went on to take the legal practice course in Chester before qualifying as a solicitor in 2017.

She said: "It’s an exciting time to join Watsons: as a growing, dynamic team with a good mix of younger and older partners, the prospects here were particularly enticing, and that really tipped the balance.

“It’s been such a smooth transition. I work on many of the same areas I did previously, but there is much more going on, including advising new clients and attending multiple hearings in a day, so it’s consistently fast paced.

“The majority of my time is spent in areas of the law connected with children, such as advising on care proceedings, but I also cover domestic abuse.

“Many of the cases I deal with are complex, involving vulnerable individuals and serious allegations of abuse, so providing sensitive advice is key.”

Lauren hopes to be able to carry on expanding her expertise and her standing in the area by representing clients well.

She continued: “I’m very much a people person, and value being able to give others a voice; it’s a privilege to be able to make a genuine difference in their lives.

“I hope to be on the Law Society’s children’s panel in the near future, but most importantly I want to continue to build my professional reputation in the region.”

Partner and fellow member of the family department, Danny Hudson, said: “We are always on the lookout for talented local professionals, so we’re over the moon to have Lauren on board.

“We now have the biggest family department in Warrington, with four full-time fee earners, as well as four hugely experienced support staff.

“We have developed an enviable reputation as the go-to family law firm in the area, and continuing to bolster our numbers with talented individuals like Lauren will only result in more success.”
