Sarah Ward from Morpeth is the new addition at the Newcastle office of divorce law firm Vardags.
She has joined as a Senior Associate advising high-net worth individuals on all legal issues arising from the breakdown of their marriage.
Before returning to her native North East, she established her own consultancy firm covering all areas of family law and her previous employment was at a well-regarded firm in Northumberland.
Sarah has a particular interest and experience in farming cases. The damage caused to the farm by a divorce can be irreparable and requires particular expertise.
Meanwhile, Vardags has announced that it will be sponsoring the Belsay Horse Trials for the second year running. The event takes place in early June.
Founder Ayesha Vardag is a keen horsewoman and she is thrilled to be supporting the event once again.
