A KEIGHLEY law firm has appointed a new associate director.

Andrew Foulds, a member of the AWB Charlesworth family law team, has been promoted to the role.

He joined the company in 2012.

Mr Foulds – an accredited resolution specialist – covers a wide range of family law matters, from divorce to cohabitation, children disputes and civil partnerships.

“I am delighted to be appointed an associate director with the firm I joined as a paralegal more than nine years ago,” said Mr Foulds. “The firm has always been very supportive in my development as a solicitor.”

Umberto Vietri, director at AWB Charlesworth, said: “We are delighted for Andrew. Not only has he developed into an excellent family lawyer, he has earned a position of respect and trust amongst his colleagues and contemporaries.”

The company also has offices in Bingley, Skipton and Bradford.
