Harjit promoted to head of family law department

Harjit Rait | Head of Family Law | LCF Law

One of the region’s leading family law teams will be led by experienced lawyer and partner, Harjit Rait, following her promotion at LCF Law. Harjit is a Resolution accredited specialist family lawyer, and she will manage the team, who are based across the firm’s Bradford, Leeds, Harrogate and Ilkley offices.

Harjit said: “During my time at LCF Law I have been fortunate to help many people at difficult times in their lives. I always make sure that I deliver the best possible service when dealing with matters relating to their family, be it disputes around the arrangements for the children, or protection of assets before or after a marriage, as well as guiding them through the financial settlement process.  My clients and my work are both hugely important to me.

“Legally I make sure everything is watertight, but just as importantly, it’s my job to be there for my clients every step of the way emotionally. Each client is unique and needs to be fully understood and happy with the eventual outcome. As a family lawyer you need good inter-personal skills and I have always been a people person who is keen to understand, listen and find the right solution.

“In my new role I will continue to work with my own clients and support everyone in the family law team, but I will also become more involved with the strategic development of the department, which is something I’m looking forward to.”

LCF Law’s managing partner, Ragan Montgomery, said: “I’ve known Harjit since our university days, and I can confidently say she has the right personality and skills for the role. She builds excellent relationships with her clients, is a fabulous networker and is very supportive of the development of others. Her talent for forging and maintaining excellent working relationships during her 22-year legal career will stand her in good stead as she continues to build on the successes of our trusted family law team.”

LCF Law’s family department operates across all areas of family and matrimonial law including divorce, separation, pre-nuptial agreements, co-habitation agreements, and matters relating to children.
