Wilkin Chapman solicitors' partner appointed to Rural Support Network Board
Wilkin Chapman’s head of family law, Lisa Boileau, has been appointed to the board of the Lincolnshire Rural Support Network (LRSN).
Lisa, a partner at the law firm and head of the family departments, joined the LRSN board earlier this year. LRSN aims to provide help and support to farmers, farming families and rural communities in times of crisis, stress and change.
With strong links to the farming community through her work at Wilkin Chapman, Lisa first became involved with LRSN almost a decade ago, assisting some their case workers with family law related issues. Since then, her relationship with the charity has grown.
Lisa said: “From my initial contact around ten years ago, I have developed a strong affinity with the Charity's ethos and values, and the fantastic work it undertakes. I didn't think twice when I was invited to join the board.”
Born in Yorkshire, Lisa moved to Lincolnshire in 1992 to train with Wilkin Chapman. She qualified in 1994, specialising in family law, and became one of the UK’s first Family Law Arbitrators and one of a small number of accredited specialist Resolution lawyers.
Lisa added: “Having strong links with the farming community I have, over the years, had the privilege of assisting many farming families in connection with divorce and other family law issues. Over that time, my knowledge of farming and rural issues has grown, as has my admiration and respect for the work undertaken by our farmers and rural communities.
“I’m looking forward to getting to know more of the LRSN team and to contributing as much as I can to such a worthwhile and well-managed cause.”
