Hartnell Chanot & Partners marked the launch of their new office in Plymouth with two celebrations both attended by Baroness Floella Benjamin as their guest speaker.

Hartnell Chanot & Partners move to Plymouth follows on from the success of the family law services they provide in Exeter. They saw Plymouth as the ideal opportunity to evolve whilst keeping family law at the heart of what they do. The launch was marked by two celebratory events inviting local businesses, partners, legal advisors and guardians.

Their expansion to Plymouth will bring essential legal, practical, and emotional support and resources to assist family law clients in the city. Their move will reinforce Hartnell Chanot’s position as the first choice for both private and legal aid clients seeking legal advice on family law related issues.

Floella, recently elevated to the House of Lords and now the ‘voice’ for the family in debates and law making, believes a pathway needs to be formed for others to be able to help families in the correct way. She understands that children are commonly used in relationships negatively, and that families and children have to be shown that life can be different and lead you to a better place. She believes that the cycle has to be broken to create an oasis or haven with the three C’s; Consideration, Contentment and Confidence.

Floella commented: “Throughout my career I have always tried to make a difference to the lives of young people. That is my mission and passion and I was delighted to be a part of the Plymouth launch for Hartnell Chanot & Partners.

Norman Hartnell commented: “Baroness Floella Benjamin was the perfect person to mark the launch of the Plymouth office. She is a positive and inspirational force for families in the UK and something we at Hartnell Chanot truly advocate. Her presence and inspirational speeches were truly amazing, and her views on family law and how we can help made us release how much we can make a difference to the lives of others, with what we do.”
