Flint Bishop Solicitors has welcomed two new recruits to its Family Law team.

Kirpal Bidmead, Partner and Head of the Family Law team, has been with Flint Bishop for almost four years and has built up one of the most highly regarded departments in the region. Kirpal is now building on her successes and has welcomed two solicitors, Erika and Gareth, to support the team’s growth.

Erika Perrin joins from one of East Anglia’s leading firms, Fraser Dawbarns. She has almost 7 years’ specialist family law experience and advises on divorce, cohabitation, finances and arrangements for children.  Gareth Protheroe joins from East Midlands firm, Smith Partnership. Having qualified as a solicitor 2 years ago, Gareth chose to specialise exclusively in family law. He advises on all aspects of family law, with a particular emphasis on the resolution of children’s cases.

Managing Partner for Private Client Services, Ian Beardmore, comments “I’m delighted to welcome Erika and Gareth. Their recruitment is part of our continued organic growth and an indication of our confidence and aspirations for the future. Our Family Law team is one of the strongest in the region, led by Legal 500 recognised Partner and Head of Family, Kirpal Bidmead, who I’ve no doubt Erika and Gareth will thoroughly enjoy working with. I wish them the very best in their new roles at Flint Bishop.
