Top Recommended Family Lawyers

Susan Apthorp, a partner at Sears Tooth since 2008, is often found in court rather than in her Mayfair office. Clients rely on her ability to resolve contentious divorces and cite her ‘sound judgement’ and ‘tenacity’. A QC adds that her track record ‘speaks for itself’. Her expertise encompasses complex financial remedy cases, Inheritance Act claims and jurisdiction battles. Reported cases include issues relating to religious marriages and international divorces, and she advises on private children matters. Apthorp, who switched to law from working as an art agent and gallerist, says humour is vital in her job: ‘If you can make your client laugh, tensions tend to ease.’
