Best lawyers for HNW clients, says Spear’s 500 Index 2019

The Spear’s 500 Index 2019 of the best advisers for HNW clients has named four Family Law in Partnership lawyers as top family lawyers. Directors Gillian Bishop and Bradley Williams have both been recommended for their work in supporting HNW clients through divorce and separation, whilst Family Law in Partnership senior associates Charlotte Symes and Mariko Wilson have both been named as Rising Stars in the family law world.

The Spear’s 500 Index names the top private client advisers, wealth managers, lawyers and service providers for HNW individuals. As Spear’s itself says, the Index names “the experts, the crème de la crème, the exalted cadre of men and women to whom we turn in moments of dire need“. We are thrilled to have made its ranks once again.

Director Gillian Bishop focuses on all aspects of divorce and family law, in particular in the financial repercussions of relationship breakdown and complex private law children matters. Her work frequently has an international perspective, often involving tax and trust implications, substantial assets or incomes. 

Bradley Williams, also a director at Family Law in Partnership, has a comprehensive family law practice specialising in complex financial remedy applications, applications regarding the property of non-married couples and private children law issues. Many of Bradley’s clients are international and most have substantial assets.

Senior associate Charlotte Symes advises on a wide range of family matters including pre and post nuptial agreements and the financial issues arising from the divorce and separation of cohabiting couples. She speaks fluent French and spent 18 months living in Paris working in French law firms. Charlotte has the expertise and experience to conduct client meetings in French.

Mariko Wilson is also a senior associate at Family Law in Partnership. She handles all aspects of private family law and has a broad range of experience, frequently acting for high net worth individuals in financial relief and divorce proceedings as well as acting in children matters.
