A LAW firm has welcomed a new partner to the team.

Amy Foweather has been appointed to the Family Law Department law firm, Harrowells, which has offices in York, Haxby, Thirsk and Pocklington.

Mrs Foweather will help advise clients in York with wide range of family law matters, including divorce, complex financial settlements involving property, family businesses, farms and pensions.
