A team from francis george solicitor-advocate, one of the leading solicitors’ firms for the Swindon area, is climbing Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain peak at 1,345m above sea level, to help support North Wiltshire Resolution.
Francis George, senior partner at the firm, is also chair of the North Wiltshire branch of Resolution, a growing group of family lawyers which works to resolve disputes and family-related cases constructively and amicably.
Francis said “Divorce and separation can be a mountain to climb unless handled effectively”.
He will be joined on the climb by business partner Asif Robbani and a trainee lawyer at francis george solicitor-advocate, Ross Peters. The expedition is set for 9 December 2018, and, given the time of year, the three will be undertaking a winter climbing skills course first. On the trip, mountaineer Iain Murray will act as their guide.
Francis said: “There’s likely to be snow, ice and tears! (And that’s just on Asif’s part!) I know how challenging these climbs can be – I scaled Mont Blanc back in July and the conditions were bad then, even at the height of summer.
“But it was genuinely the experience of a lifetime. The team and I are now embracing this thrilling new challenge, getting into some training and looking forward to raising some much-needed funds for Resolution.
“As the chair of the local region, I feel it’s important that we continue to raise money and spread the word about what Resolution does in the hope that this will encourage other family lawyers and clients to adopt the same mentality. I hope so much that people will support us and this very worthy cause.”
