Jersey-based family law firm Myersons has announced two senior promotions. Advocate Carly James (pictured right) has been made a partner, the first appointment of this kind for the firm. Carly takes partnership alongside founder and the firm’s namesake Victoria Myerson. The firm has also announced a second promotion, with Advocate Celanne Scally (pictured left) becoming senior associate.
Victoria Myerson said: “Carly and Celanne are both thoroughly deserving of these promotions. We have worked together for a long time, which makes us an incredibly strong unit. This is an exciting time for Myersons and I am looking forward to continuing to give support to our clients with this extremely talented and motivated team.”
The promotions reflect the success of the firm since its foundation in 2017. In its first three years of practice, Myersons has enjoyed unprecedented growth, adding a fourth lawyer, a paralegal and an office manager as the business has developed.
Carly James has been practicing in family law for 15 years and has specialist expertise in divorce and separation proceedings, as well as dealing with complex children matters, a practice which continues to grow. Named as a “Rising Star” in the 2020 edition of The Legal 500 Carly has said she is “delighted” to take this next step in her career at Myersons.
Celanne Scally has worked in the field of family law for almost a decade and, like her colleagues Victoria and Carly, has significant experience dealing with both matrimonial and private children law matters. She too was named as a “Rising Star” this year by The Legal 500, and in 2019 was announced as one of eprivateclient’s “Top 35 Under 35” in the Channel Islands, for the second year running.
