William Longrigg joined Charles Russell as an articled clerk in 1985 and simply never left. ‘There was never anywhere better to go,’ he says. Longrigg predicts Brexit will have a ‘very significant’ impact on family law: ‘For the past decade or so, EU states have had quite an efficient system. Of course, now, that’s going to be completely swept under the table.’ Although the UK’s current system is very thorough and ‘has to be commended for that’, it’s ‘too cumbersome, too expensive and too uncertain’. If he had his way, Brexit might present an opportunity for ‘significant streamlining and simplification’. But will it happen? ‘Alas, that’s extremely unlikely.’
