Best family lawyers for high net worth individuals in 2023

Welcome to the Spear’s ranking of the best family lawyers for high-net-worth individuals in the UK

By Spear's

Part of the Spear’s Legal Indices

Going through a divorce can be one of the most unpleasant, difficult situations in one’s life. For high-net-worth (HNW) individuals with more than £1 million in investable assets, this process can come with added complexities.

A family lawyer plays a central part in untangling these issues at every stage of this process. As well as guiding their clients through the process of divorce, they are able to assist on legal issues such as child custody, pre-and post-nuptial agreements, mediation and financial matters. They will instruct the correct barrister if litigation in court is required and can take the lead in litigation and arbitration procedures.
