Top Recommended Family Lawyers
Suzanne Kingston is passionate about keeping clients out of court when possible, so much so that she’s known as ‘the Queen of ADR’ (alternative dispute resolution). It was Kingston, in fact, who introduced family law arbitration training to England and Wales.
The Spear’s 2015 Family Lawyer of the Year prides herself on her creative approach. ‘Each individual presents a unique issue and it’s about thinking outside the box, giving different options and helping them reach a solution via court, mediation or arbitration,’ she says.
Kingston, described as ‘sensible, approachable and fair, and tough when she needs to be’ by a colleague, relishes variety in her practice. Highly regarded for her handling of complex and often international financial issues for HNWs, in the past year she has advised an HNW family on legal issues involving money and children, and worked on numerous big divorces, prenups, mediations and arbitrations.
Clients, who include hedge fund owners, celebrities and footballers, sing her praises: ‘She made herself available 24/7 and always went the extra mile to ensure that my interests were best served,’ says one.
