Her client’s included royalty and high-profile athletes.

Whilst in London, Emma was a member of the YRes Committee – a group dedicated to ensuring junior family law professionals can share experiences and develop their skills in a supportive environment. She was also a volunteer legal advisor at the Rights of Women, an organisation based in England and Wales that ensures women are aware of, and have access to, their full legal rights.

Emma comments: “Having practiced in London for a number of years with some leading law firms, I am delighted to return back to Northern Ireland as I begin the next chapter in my legal career. I was keen to join a firm with not only an exceptional reputation but one that places their staff at the heart of their business – and I am very happy to have found that in MKB Law.”

Anne Marie Kelly comments: “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Emma to the team at MKB Law. Emma’s exceptional knowledge and expertise will further strengthen our Family Law department and our management team at a time of confident expansion for the company.”
