Chambers & Partners High Net Worth 2020 – fantastic rankings for FLiP.
Family Law in Partnership is proud to announce the firm’s continued success as top family lawyers ranked in the latest edition of Chambers High Net Worth, published July 2020.
Chambers HNW notes:
“One family lawyer says everyone at boutique firm Family Law in Partnership is “responsive, sensible, human and a joy to work with,” adding that “FLiP has an ethos where everybody behaves sensibly.” Another source says:”They are all intelligent, hard-working people who imbue the right type of approach.”
A London barrister says the FLiP lawyers “are constantly looking for better ways to get better results for their clients and use therapeutic mediation,” adding that “it is a very holistic team and therefore has a refreshing take on couples’ disputes.””
Director Bradley Williams joins fellow directors David Allison and James Pirrie together with consultants Pamela Collis and Gillian Bishop in Chambers’ rankings of leading family lawyers for high net worth individuals. And having included a ranking of leading family mediators for the first time this year, Chambers HNW ranks our Head of Mediation Dominic Raeside, along with James Pirrie and Gillian Bishop as spotlight, leading family mediators.
Here is what Chambers HNW has to say about our leading family lawyers and mediators for HNW individuals:
Bradley Williams – “I would send my relatives to him if they needed family law help,” says a market insider, adding: “He is very, very intelligent, always sees the bigger picture, fights cases that need to be fought but gets the best result for the client by settling them where they have to be. He just really knows what is in his client’s best interests and keeps them on board. He is a very skilled lawyer.”
David Allison – “He is “everything you would want as a client,” says one of his peers. Another source says he is “strategically and tactically a force to be reckoned with,” adding that “he delivers excellence in family law. He is all about client service delivery””
“Exceptional mediator” Dominic Raeside is “very sought after” for family mediations. A source says he has “real gravitas on children matters” and “clients have faith in him.” Another interviewee, who has seen Raeside’s work, says: “He helped the parents understand how to make things easier and better for the child. I thought he did it with great skill.”
Gillian Bishop – She “is “a very good representation of the modern, friendly ethos that I think of when I think about FLiP,” says a peer. Market insiders who consult Bishop “find her to be constructive and helpful” and say she is “leading the way” when it comes to collaborative law and mediation””
James Pirrie – He “is an acclaimed family law specialist who is an accomplished litigator and mediator. One market commentator says: “With his mind like a razor, he will see through to what the next sensible step to take is. He will enable people to see that they are in control of their lives; he is very facilitative.””
Pamela Collis – “A source who dealt with Pamela Collis in a recent matter describes her as “a breath of fresh air” and commends her ability to “defuse what could have been highly contentious proceedings.””
