Wilson retires after almost 40 years working in family law and dispute resolution. Paying tribute to his career, Stephens said: “Over the years he’s been a calming influence and a voice of sense which has made him so widely respected among clients, within legal circles and in our wider community too.”

While the mantle of senior partner has passed to Stephens, who has himself been with the firm since 1977, experienced lawyer John McLachlan has been appointed to head up Hine Downing’s family law and civil litigation department, backed by associates Lianne Costin, an expert in family law, and Jo Fisher, who specialises in landlord, tenant and personal injury matters.
