Beyond Law Group strengthens its specialist family law practice with the appointment of new Associate
Beyond Law Group’s award-winning family and children law practice, McAlister Family Law, has appointed Hannah Jones to its Divorce and Finance team following its strongest period of growth.
Hannah has worked in family law for ten years and brings a wealth of experience to the role. Prior to joining McAlister Family Law, Hannah worked in both North Wales and Liverpool, the latter being in a Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners ranked firm.
Hannah’s role at McAlister Family Law will see her advising on a range of private family law issues, including complex and high net worth financial matters involving businesses and pensions. Hannah is a member of Resolution and is working towards attaining Resolution Accreditation.
McAlister Family Law’s divorce and finance team has more than doubled in size over the last two years, with the most recent appointment being that of Partner, Jason Stanley.
Hannah’s appointment follows the most successful year to date for Beyond Law Group and its specialist practices. McAlister Family Law has quickly established itself as the go-to family law practice in the North-West, having climbed the rankings in both Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners year on year and being named “Family Team of the Year” at the Manchester Legal Awards in both 2022 and 2023.
Amanda McAlister, Managing Partner of McAlister Family Law, comments: “We are delighted to have Hannah join our growing team. Hannah will be a tremendous asset to the Group and will make a significant contribution to the development of our Divorce and Finance division, as we continue our programme of strategic growth in the North West and beyond”.
McAlister Family Law is a specialist practice of Beyond Law Group, the disruptive legal business whose strategy is to create, build and manage specialist legal practices under one modern business structure. Beyond Law Group’s concept brings corporate and consumer legal services together, a concept which has rarely been successful in the UK but which Beyond Law Group has achieved.
Speaking about her new role, in which she will act in a wide range of divorce and finance matters, Hannah said: “I am excited to be joining a firm as highly regarded and well-established as Beyond Law Group, with traditional core values yet a modern and dynamic business structure. It’s an honour be given the opportunity to contribute to the accelerating growth and success of McAlister Family Law; its growth, scale and ambitions are evident and I’m keen to build on its strong reputation.”
Matt Fleetwood, Chief Executive and Founder of Beyond Law Group, comments: “We have made a number of key hires into McAlister Family Law over the last 12 months and as a result the practice has closed on its most successful year to date. Hannah’s’ appointment reinforces our commitment to invest in our people and support our clients with the very best talent that the legal sector has to offer.”
