New Partner for Clarke Willmott's family team

Experienced family lawyer Philippa Yeo (pictured) has joined national law firm Clarke Willmott LLP as a partner, based in its Bristol and Taunton offices.  

Philippa’s expertise has an agricultural focus and she specialises in resolving high net worth financial cases involving complex trust assets, farms and businesses. She is a qualified family mediator and deals with all types of mediation including financial claims arising on divorce, disputes arising from cohabitation and arrangements around children (including international relocation).

Prior to joining Clarke Willmott, Philippa spent over six years at boutique practice CHR Family Solicitors. Before that she spent five years at leading London law firm Charles Russell Speechlys, where she trained and qualified.

Philippa said: “I am very excited to join such a strong team which has the benefit of being able to draw on the extensive expertise of other practice areas, offering clients the highest service. I am looking forward to helping families across the South West and building the firm’s family team offering, which is going from strength to strength.”

Gareth Schofield, Partner and Head of the Head of the Family Team at Clarke Willmott, added: “Philippa is acclaimed for her ability and expertise and has a wealth of experience in family law matters relating to farms and farming businesses. We are delighted she has agreed to join us and she will be greatly beneficial to our busy team.” 

Clarke Willmott is a national law firm with offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton.
