Emma, who has joined Burgess Mee from Ince (formally Gordon Dadds), will focus on high net worth matters, financial settlements and complex children work. She was previously a partner and head of department at Rooks Rider Solicitors, having joined Wedlake Bell as a solicitor specialising in family law upon qualification in 1995.
Emma has had many reported cases including being one of the first (if not the first) to obtain a Civil Restraint Order in an ancillary relief case. Her clients include entrepreneurs, sports people, people in the entertainment industry, professionals, and those with trust interests. She is a member of Resolution and a trained collaborative solicitor.
Antonia Mee, partner and co-founder of Burgess Mee, said: “Emma brings a wealth of invaluable experience to Burgess Mee, having worked on some of the most complex, often high-profile, family law cases. Her appointment will enable us to provide additional strategic support of the highest quality to our clients.”
Emma Morris said: “I’m excited to be joining Burgess Mee, which has a stellar reputation for excellence and innovation in terms of its client work and service as well as the firm’s culture. I look forward to working with the team to further develop the practice, as we help clients to achieve the optimum solution to whatever family or divorce issue they may be facing.”
Burgess Mee, which this year celebrates its tenth anniversary, was commended in The Times’ Best Law Firms 2023, and named London Law Firm of the Year at the LexisNexis Family Law Awards 2022 and Best Boutique Family Law Firm at the 2022 eprivateclient Excellence Awards.
