Aaron & Parnters LLP, based in Chester and Manchester, has strengthened its family law expertise with the appointment of Richard Barge as partner.
A specialist divorce lawyer with 16 years’ experience, Mr Barge joins from FBC Manby Bowdler and will head up the family department at Aaron & Partners.
