UK and leading Scottish law firm, Brodies LLP, has added to its family practice with the appointment of Jacqueline Stroud, who joins the firm as partner.

With more than 30 years' experience in family law, Jacqueline will be based in Brodies' Edinburgh office. Whilst specialising in financial provision work, and in mediation - expanding the team's existing credentials in that area - she will work with clients on a broad spectrum of family law matters.

This latest appointment underpins Brodies' commitment to the individuals its family practice supports and, following the recent promotions of Inverness-based Sarah Lilley, and Susie Mountain in Aberdeen, brings the number of specialist family partners to five.

Brodies managing partner, Nick Scott, said: "Our clients will benefit from Jacqueline's experience. Her appointment further strengthens our family team, which, following the promotions of Sarah and Susie, now sees partners in all our offices – Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Inverness and Glasgow – delivering on the objectives we set ourselves in our 2021 – 2024 strategic plans. We welcome Jacqueline to the firm and look forward to her contribution."

Brodies has the largest family law practice in Scotland. With dedicated specialists in all of its locations – Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Highlands & Islands, and Glasgow – the firm supports clients on a range of family law matters including, divorce and separation; family law and children; dispute resolution; cohabitation, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements and international personal matters.
