Ashfords adds family solicitor to Bristol private client team

Ashfords has appointed family solicitor Megan Prideaux to its Family Team in the Bristol office. Prideaux joins the firm on 17 February with her appointment strengthening the firm’s private client offering.

Megan’s appointment from Thrings continues the growth of the team at Ashfords following the recent arrivals of Samantha Newton and Katie Webber. Megan will complement the existing work and expertise of the busy and highly regarded Family Team, who are renowned for their high quality, compassionate approach.

Prideaux has worked on a wide and varied case load, including divorce, financial and private children law matters. She has regularly advised on financial settlements as well as cohabitation and pre- and post-nuptial agreements that include international assets. Prideaux has worked on Children Act matters, non-molestation and occupation orders for families and negotiated on behalf of her clients in respect of property disputes where they are neither married or in a civil partnership. She is also a member of Resolution and is looking forward to becoming collaboratively trained.
Zoe Porter, Partner and Head of the Family Team, says: “I am excited for Megan to join our growing Family Team in Bristol. Her experience will bolster the team’s expertise and experience in helping families during some of their most difficult periods. Megan is an accomplished lawyer who brings sensitivity, care and consideration to her clients and so will be a perfect addition to the team.”
Prideaux adds:“I cannot wait to begin working with the successful Family Team at Ashfords who are renowned for offering a sensitive and bespoke approach to their clients. It is a pleasure to be joining a team so highly-regarded by clients, and to be joining one of the leading firms in the South-West.”
