Top Recommended Family Lawyers

Described by peers as ‘fiercely intelligent and extremely able’, Fiona Read describes her practice as ‘everything from district resolution – so mediation and family arbitration – to highly complex international cases’. ‘Brexit will definitely have an impact on family law,’ says Read, who also serves as a district judge. ‘We’ll be doing a lot of work with lawyers all over the world. It’s going to be quite intellectually stimulating for us, but not much fun for the clients.’ She has seen a ‘very significant’ increase in mediation cases and a fall in general instruction: ‘I think Brexit, and the uncertainty around that, is driving people to either delay or to look into other options.’
