A FORMER trainee of Worcestershire solicitors Harrison Clark has returned to the law firm as its sixth partner in its family law department.

Chris Allen-Jones, the former head of family at the Black Country firm George Green&Co has rejoined Harrison Clark having many years ago completed his training under the stewardship of partners Jonathan Brew and Andrew Caldicott.

Mr Allen-Jones brings with him a wealth of experience gained from working in another leading regional practice, as well as a Birmingham city firm of lawyers with a national presence, and maintains many connections with the City of London. He will use this experience to specialise in developing Harrison Clark’s continued growth and success in Birmingham and London. Mr Allen-Jones has specialised in family law work since 1995. He has particular expertise in cohabitation disputes including financial claims on behalf of children, and the determination of property interests. As a member of the Family Law Committee of the Birmingham Law Society and former member of the Committee for West Midlands Resolution – First For Family Law – Mr Allen-Jones campaigns for improvements in the practice and procedure of family law.

He said: “I am delighted to rejoin Harrison Clark in order to help and assist developing the firm’s practice and profile in Birmingham and London.”

Jonathan Brew, senior partner and joint head of Harrison Clark’s family law department, added: “It is with the greatest of pleasure to welcome Chris back home and into the fold.”
