Geldards boost East Midlands family law team with senior appointment

Law firm Geldards has boosted their East Midlands family law team with the appointment of senior associate Janine Hobday, to their Derby office.

With over 12 years’ experience, Janine joins from Flint Bishop and specialises in matrimonial finances, with a particular emphasis on the resolution of financial issues for wealthy individuals.

Recognised by Legal 500 as a ‘Rising Star’, Janine is a member of Resolution and helps to resolve family issues, especially those concerning children, in a non-confrontational way.

Having studied law at the University of Bristol and her subsequent LPC at the University of the West of England, Janine returned to work in the East Midlands and has been practising in Derby for the past eight years.

Commenting on the appointment Fiona Apthorpe, partner, head of family law at Geldards, said: “We are thrilled that Janine has joined the Family Law team in Derby. She brings with her a great deal of experience and specialist knowledge, which will strengthen the service we can offer to our clients.

“We already have a really great team of family lawyers in the East Midlands and this new appointment takes us one step closer to becoming the leading specialist matrimonial department in the region. We are delighted to welcome Janine to the team at Geldards.”

Janine said: “I am looking forward to starting my journey with Geldards, their reputation for Family law is second to none and am pleased to be joining the team and enhancing what is already a very strong offering.”
