Family/Matrimonial in London (Firms) Legal Rankings

Ranking Tables

Lawyers and law firms ranked in our family law tables specialise in issues surrounding the inception and breakdown of personal relationships. This includes the creation of prenuptial, civil partnership and cohabitation agreements relating to financial and property assets, the resolution of divorces or separations involving financial and property disputes, and the handling of matters relating to children in the context of divorce or separation. It also includes work related to adoption, surrogacy and assisted reproduction.

Firms ranked in London range from family boutiques such as Hughes Fowler Carruthers and Family Law in Partnership to family teams at full-service law firms including Withers and Mishcon de Reya. We also feature a number of specialists in public law and children work, including Bindmans and Creighton & Partners.

Indeed, our London rankings actually include two separate sub-tables focusing exclusively on children work. The first is Children: Public Law Matters, which covers children's care proceedings and abuse in care claims. The other is Children: Cross-Border Disputes, which primarily covers international child abduction cases.

Owing to the high degree of focus by many family law practitioners on ADR proceedings, we have also introduced a “Mainly ADR” sub-table in order to highlight lawyers who are primarily practicing as family mediators and arbitrators.
