The head of family law at Bromleys Solicitors has been recognised for his expertise with a prestigious accreditation from the Law Society.
Keith Bull has gained advanced accreditation in family law after undergoing a rigorous assessment procedure.
The qualification is the highest level of accreditation given by the Law Society for family law cases, and earns Keith admission to the Law Society’s advanced family law panel.
Keith specialises in divorce and separation cases involving wealthy married and unmarried couples, as well as cases involving children, domestic abuse, cohabitation disputes and complex financial and property matters.
He has more than 30 years’ experience in family law and held senior roles at firms in the Home Counties, the south west and the north west before joining Bromleys in 2018, where he has overseen significant growth for the department.
In addition to his Law Society accreditation, Keith is recognised for his expertise by Resolution, an organisation of family lawyers and other professionals who are committed to constructive, non-confrontational ways to resolve divorce, separation and other family-related legal issues.
Keith holds accreditation by Resolution in four specialist areas – cohabitation disputes relating to land and financial issues, domestic abuse, finances and private children matters, and is on its specialist family law panel.
He is also an assessor for Resolution, which is the largest membership organisation for family justice professionals in England and Wales, representing thousands of solicitors, legal executives, barristers, financial experts, family mediators and therapists.
As a result of his latest accreditation, Keith becomes one of only two solicitors in Greater Manchester to be on the Law Society’s advanced family law panel and the Resolution family law specialist panel.
Keith, who is a senior associate at Bromleys, said: “I am immensely proud to become one of a select group of family law specialists on both the Resolution accredited family law panel and the Law Society’s advanced family law panel.
“Although it took a great deal of hard work to come through the assessment process, which related to my own cases and resolving complex case studies set by the Law Society, it was a very worthwhile exercise to undertake this latest accreditation.”
Mark Hirst, senior partner at Bromleys, which is based in Ashton-under-Lyne, Tameside, said: “Keith is a highly-experienced family law solicitor whose industry-leading expertise is rightly reflected with this prestigious accreditation by the Law Society.
“He joins an elite group of family law practitioners, demonstrating to clients that they are dealing with a solicitor who has shown a high level of competence and technical ability.
“In addition to his undoubted technical skills, Keith and his team are extremely empathetic to their clients’ circumstances, and try to resolve and disputes with the minimum of conflict. Where this cannot be achieved through agreement, Keith is able to give clear and pragmatic advice and fight for his clients.
“At Bromleys, Keith has overseen tremendous growth for our family law team and the career development of staff in the department. He truly deserves this recognition, which further sets our family team apart from others.”
