We are delighted to announce that three lawyers from Family Law in Partnership have been shortlisted for awards in the prestigious LexisNexis Family Law Awards 2018. The Family Law Awards were launched to recognise the important work of family lawyers, and celebrate their many successes and outstanding achievements.
