Anthony Collins Solicitors (ACS) has promoted three lawyers to partner in its May promotions round, including a lawyer who specialises in cases where a local authority seeks to remove a child.
The new partners are:
- Madhur (Maddie) Sharma (private client)
- Maria Ramon (private client)
- Ann Houghton (personal injury and clinical negligence)
ACS said Sharma has more than 20 years’ experience as a childcare solicitor, specialising in cases where the local authority seeks to remove a child, along with disputes between parents in relation to children, primarily representing the child in these cases. She has been a member of the Law Society Childcare panel since 2005.
Ramon has more than 17 years’ experience as a family solicitor and is an accredited family mediator with the Family Mediation Council. She helped set up the family mediation practice at ACS.
Houghton meanwhile has extensive experience across specialist areas of personal injury and clinical negligence, including cases arising from road traffic accidents, accidents at work and accidents in public places, ACS said. Additionally, she represents people who have sustained injury or harm due to substandard medical care.
Peter Hubbard, senior partner at Anthony Collins Solicitors, said: “Our partner promotions will further strengthen our market-leading private client and personal injury and clinical negligence offering. Maddie, Maria and Ann have been instrumental in growing our client base nationwide and ensuring that the entire team won the Lexis Nexis Family Law Firm of the Year: Midlands and Wales 2021. Each of these leaders fully embodies our values and has continuously demonstrated commitment to our aim to improve lives, communities and society.
