Best Family Lawyers for HNW Clients: FLiP Spear’s Rankings


Eight of FLiP’s family lawyers are ranked among the best family lawyers in the 2024 Spear’s Family Law Index, which lists top lawyers for HNW individuals.

Directors David Allison, Daniel Coombes, Elizabeth Hicks and Bradley Williams, along with Consultant Pamela Collis, are all named as Top Recommended family lawyers for HNW individuals contemplating divorce or separation. Directors James Pirrie, Charlotte Symes and Mariko Wilson are also Recommended in this category.

All of the FLiP family law specialists highlighted by Spear’s regularly advise on complex and challenging family law issues, often with an international dimension, for HNW and UHNW individuals. Our approach is always settlement-focused but, when necessary and appropriate, we are robust litigators protecting our clients’ best interests.

At FLiP our specialist family lawyers work in partnership with our clients and other advisers to develop long-lasting solutions which deliver the very best outcomes for our clients and their families. FLiP’s family lawyers are consistently ranked as leaders in their field for family/matrimonial work, and they offer top-tier expertise. Clients are also supported by our in-house relationship therapists who work alongside our lawyers and mediators to help clients to manage the emotional and relationship aspects of their divorce or separation.

At FLiP we are renowned for our expertise in robust litigation on the one hand and in resolving disputes outside the court process on the other, using a range of creative solutions including solicitor-led negotiation, mediation, arbitration, collaborative practice and the one couple/one lawyer model. We offer the best chance of avoiding litigation for those clients who prefer that course. However, we recognise that sometimes litigation is the most appropriate option, and in those circumstances, we use our expertise to support clients robustly within the court process.

Much of our work for HNW and UHNW clients involves complex cross-jurisdictional issues of family, matrimonial and trusts law. We have been involved in many of the most high-profile cases of recent years, pursuing cases in the courts where necessary, or settling matters away from the courts when circumstances allow for this.

Our family lawyers advise on the full range of family law issues including:

  • Divorce and separation (including all financial and children related issues);
  • International divorce (including jurisdiction disputes);
  • Never-married family separations (including cohabitant claims and financial support for children);
  • Parenting and other children issues (including applications to relocate within the UK and abroad);
  • Pre- and post-nuptial agreements;
  • Same-sex marriage and civil partnerships; and
  • Abuse In relationships and physical protection

Recent quotes from the leading legal directories describe FLiP as “a great team with a stellar reputation”; “a magic circle firm with a difference”; “overall a top class outfit”; and “FLiP offers one of the best family law services in London.”
