What's your position at Pinney Talfourd?

I am head of the family team and have been since I joined the firm in 2004.  Prior to that, I was a barrister for 7 years practising in Central London. I then joined a smaller firm in Essex for a short period of time before moving to Pinney Talfourd. I lead a team which comprises of five partners, two senior associates, an associate and a solicitor.
