Unit Chambers is delighted to announce that Kristine Lidgerwood has joined the team as a Consultant Barrister. Kristine is one of the North West’s most respected Solicitors and she has recently been called to the Bar after nearly 30 years’ experience and specialism in family law and in particular public law work.
Kristine graduated from Liverpool University with a BSc honours degree in Zoology and also completed an MBA from the University of Chester. She has been a member of the Law Society‘s Children Panel since 2002 and finds that her scientific background has been a real asset in cases involving complicated medical evidence. Kristine undertakes work in all aspects of relationship and family breakdown but specialises in cases relating to children.
Lisa Edmunds, CEO and Senior Consultant Barrister of Unit Chambers said, ‘The Unit Chambers Board of Directors are delighted to have acquired the services of an outstanding and highly experienced new Consultant Barrister and we look forward to Kristine joining us. We are an ambitious new breed of Chambers and Kristine’s knowledge of the role of the solicitor as well as her experience of being at the coalface with the client will ensure that Unit Chambers will go from strength to strength.’

Having spent the last 10 years as a court agent advocate I am thrilled to transfer to the Bar and joining the team at Unit Chambers gives me a great launchpad for the next phase of my legal career.
