Birmingham lawyer announced as the new chair of the West Midlands Resolution group
Adam Maguire a partner at national law firm Clarke Willmott, takes the reins from outgoing chair Chris Lloyd-Smith
Adam will head up the regional subcommittee of the organisation which covers Birmingham, the Black Country, Wolverhampton and Worcester.
Resolution provides training and educational resources to members, ensuring they can support families and individuals during difficult times whilst also promoting alternative methods of dispute resolution which helps families find more amicable solutions and avoid the costs and acrimony associated with court. There are also networking opportunities.
The organisation advocates a non-confrontational approach to resolving family law issues and also lobbies for a fairer family justice system.
Adam Maguire, who has acted as vice-chair of Resolution since 2021, said: “I am really passionate about helping people navigate family law issues in a constructive, non-confrontational way. This includes supporting individuals themselves and providing legal representatives with the right tools and resources to facilitate this.
“As vice-chair of Resolution I have seen first-hand how our work makes a huge difference to peoples’ lives. I am looking forward to continuing this work while expanding our range of events and membership as chair.”
Adam specialises in all aspects of private family law at Clarke Willmott including cohabitation, separation, divorce and related financial issues, disputes concerning children and nuptial agreements.
