Today sees the launch of The Times Best Law Firms 2023 and for a second year running Family Law Partners has been included in the prestigious list of the leading law firms in the country.
The annual The Times Best Law Firms survey recognises the most highly regarded law firms as voted by legal industry professionals. The report is compiled by specialist business researchers Statista and lists the top 200 legal practices in England and Wales. The list is peer-selected, with survey respondents asked to recommend the best law firms across various categories, including family law work.
News of The Times recognition follows Family Law Partners’ most successful year of legal directory rankings in the firm’s history. In July, the firm’s London practice and Horsham Director Kate Elliott was ranked in the Chambers & Partners High Net Worth Guide 2023.
At the start of October, our Brighton and Horsham offices maintained their Tier 1 position in the latest edition of the Legal 500 UK for Sussex, Kent and Surrey. Our London and mediation teams saw an improved position and ‘rising star’ status for Director Trisha Siddique. In addition to recognition for our Consultants Louise Buttery in Essex and Hazel Manktelow, Emily Pain and Jayne Llewelyn in Hampshire.
On October 20th, the 2023 edition of Chambers and Partners UK was launched and the firm’s Brighton and Horsham teams secured a Band 1 ranking in their respective locations, with leading individual recognition for Directors Robert Williams, Kate Elliott, Gemma Hope and Rachel Nicholl, as well as Senior Associate Chris Maulkin and Consultant Zoë Summers.
2022 has seen continued growth for the firm, with arrival of new experts in Brighton, Horsham and London, as well as Consultants in Tunbridge Wells and Winchester. The firm, which has one of the largest dispute resolution (DR) teams in the country, strengthened its reputation for supporting clients and its team alike with the arrival of Director of Wellbeing Kim Crewe. In April, following the arrival of no-fault divorce, it launched its new model, Agreeable, a new service for divorcing and separating couples that combines specialist legal expertise and therapeutic support.
Robert Williams and Alan Larkin, Founding Directors of Family Law Partners said:
“Our ongoing recognition by The Times, Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500 is testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team. 2022 has, without any doubt, been an exceptional year for us in terms of the strength of our rankings in these prestigious guides. We are delighted by the number of our experts who have been ranked as leading individuals themselves and the testimonials and editorial comments that reflect our focus on dispute resolution and commitment to working collaboratively to resolve matters outside the court process.
This year has seen us strengthen our offering in every regard, including some exceptional new hires, the arrival of our very own Director of Client Wellbeing, the launch of our ground-breaking service Agreeable and the important and seminal work of The Family Law Menopause Project. With further growth and initiatives planned 2023 looks like another exciting year for the Family Law Partners’ team”.
