Helen Bishop to head BH&O matrimonial department

Boardman, Hawkins & Osborne LLP

Boardman Hawkins & Osborne LLP are delighted to have appointed Helen Bishop to head their matrimonial department.

Helen will lead the team consisting of lawyers Karen Newman, Amanda Stopps and Stuart Webber, all of whom have growing reputations in matrimonial finance and private children law.

Helen has been with Emily, Ruth and Irena from the beginning of the firm just over four years ago, and in fact worked with the partners for a number of years at their previous firm.

With the growth in the firm, it’s a very natural progression, and Helen will be working with the partners to lead and develop the matrimonial team moving forwards, and is looking to develop the dispute resolution side of things, with mediators Ruth Hawkins and Karen Newman.

Helen’s own reputation locally, and nationally, is well known. She is the author of a children’s book Jack and the black cat, designed to help young children cope with their parent’s separation, and her style and practice is to be constructive and problem solve.

Legal 500 2023 guide quoted a source “Helen Bishop is becoming an established financial remedy practitioner. She has excellent judgement and manages her clients and cases with authority.”

Helen says “It has been a real privilege to have worked at BH&O from the very beginning and seeing the firm grow from strength to strength. I am now very excited to have been appointed as head of the matrimonial department and look forward to working with the partners and the matrimonial team as the firm continues to grow both in size and reputation.”
