Cwmbran-based law firm Rubin Lewis O’Brien has promoted a long-standing member of staff to partner, while appointing a new starter to the team.

Angharad Morris will become partner from November 1 after six years with the firm.

Mrs Morris joined Rubin Lewis O’Brien in August 2011, working in the family department after qualifying as a solicitor in 2008. The promotion comes on the back of Mrs Morris being admitted onto the specialist Law Society Children Panel; which allows her to represent and take instructions from children during proceedings.

Mrs Morris said: “Achieving partner status has always been my ultimate career goal. I am therefore honoured to have been accepted as Rubin Lewis O’Brien’s newest partner.”

Partner and head of the family department Valerie Henley said: “We are immeasurably proud of Angharad and all her achievements since she joined us. Her promotion to Partner in the firm is incredibly well deserved and is a testament to all her hard work over the years. She has worked closely with both myself and Rhys Warren; I am sure she will continue to be a great asset to the firm and gifted advocate for her clients.”

After a strong 2017, which saw the business reaffirm its independence from the QS network in January, Rubin Lewis O’Brien continues to bring on talented legal professionals.

The firm has appointed Rebecca Cozens as a trainee legal solicitor after she graduated from Swansea University, where she spent time in Lyon, France as part of the Erasmus exchange programme.

Mrs Henley said: “Rebecca has an incredibly bright future and we are delighted that she is starting her journey with us. It is very much an exciting time at our firm.
