Fran Devine


Solicitor, Insolvency Practitioner
Managing Director
Fran believes that if something needs doing, it needs doing well.  As the founder of Devine Law she believes that the Firm typifies this approach in everything it does.

Born in Hull, Fran is determined to give her expertise and assistance to local businesses in the area to help them prosper. Having seen the business community go through many challenges, Fran was vice chair of the Hull Business Forum for many years.  In the early days she served as the Hull Law Society President and  was a member  of the Insolvency Lawyers Association Council.

As a violinist, Fran played with Leeds Symphony Orchestra and then for many exciting years with the Hull Philharmonic Orchestra.  She now counts yoga high in her list of priorities and any quiet time is applied to thinking of new ways to take the business forwards.

A new era now awaits and Fran comments: “It is with great delight that I welcome in my new co-directors. 2019 is a year to remember.”
