CH-R Family Solicitors, a new international firm specialising in all aspects of family law, is opening its doors in Newbury this week (2nd September).
The firm has been started by Claire Hamilton-Russell and Daisy Hutchinson who previously worked together for 10 years at another Newbury law firm. Both trained with leading London firms and have significant experience in high level family law and a total of more than 30 years of legal experience between them.
Claire and Daisy are both specialists in legal issues involving high net worth individuals and work with clients worldwide, as well as London and Newbury. The opening of the new business means that further jobs have been created for two assistant solicitors and two support staff posts.
Claire Hamilton-Russell started her career in 1989 and now specialises in divorce and pre-nuptial agreements. She is a member of Resolution, a code of practice for family lawyers and is a mediator with them. She has been recognised as a leader in her field by Chambers UK; a guide to the best solicitors in the UK.
She specialises in work involving family and child law; focusing on financial settlements often with an international element. Her work increasingly involves pre and post-nuptial agreements as well as civil partnership agreements.

Her business partner Daisy Hutchinson qualified in 2003 and is a family mediator similarly specialising in divorce and civil partnerships.
Claire and Daisy decided to set up their own business to bring a personal touch to family law and a bespoke service to their clients in Newbury and the surrounding area.
Claire said: “We’re committed to creating a presence here in Newbury, serving Berkshire, Hampshire and London. In our previous roles, we’ve built up a great reputation for high quality family work and we will continue to work with our clients to give them the support and reassurance they need at what is often a difficult time.
Daisy added: “We’re thrilled to be starting up a new law firm in Newbury. We are able to bring a fresh approach and a personal service, combined with many years of experience in dealing from everything to simple divorce cases to complicated tax and trust issues.”
A launch event is planned for later in the year.
