A partner and the head of the family department at Watsons Solicitors has completed her term as president of the Warrington Law Society.
Catrin Parry, who joined the Warrington law firm in 2007, handed over duties at the AGM, her final engagement in the role.
The AGM, which was held at the Park Royal Hotel, was well attended by Warrington’s legal fraternity, and Faisal Rashid, MP for Warrington South, delivered the main speech.
Catrin has helped Watsons Solicitors become a leading firm of family solicitors in Warrington. She specialises in local authority children care work acting for guardians, parents, grandparents and children. She also handles all other aspects of family work including matrimonial property disputes.
Catrin, who will stay on in an active role with the Law Society, is also a member of the Law Society Children’s panel and resolution.
She said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my 12-month stint as president of the Warrington Law Society and know it’s in capable hands moving forward.
“The Law Society plays an important role in the region to promote and support solicitors to ensure they can help their clients.”
The new president is Stephen Poyner of FDR.
