Top Recommended Family Lawyers
‘Family lawyers have to be both intellectually and emotionally astute,’ says Claire Gordon, who fits the bill and is charming to boot. She’s certainly won over colleagues, who describe her as ‘a good tactician’ and ‘a sensible, calm and reassuring presence who grasps complex issues quickly and is trusted by her clients’.
Gordon covers a broad range of issues, including divorce, complex financial settlements involving trust and international aspects, private law children matters, as well as civil partnerships and international prenups and postnups. She has (‘unwittingly’, she says) carved out a niche working on complex private equity cases, for which she has an obvious relish. The past year has been spent on a huge case (‘it’s fascinating’) advising a top international private equity company in relation to a billion-dollar investment in the context of the divorce of one of their senior figures. ‘It’s never dull,’ she insists.
Gordon’s clients range from UHNW business figures to celebrities. ‘It’s a real privilege to help people find a way through seemingly intractable situations into a place where they can move forward with their lives,’ she says.
