Top Recommended Family Lawyers
‘You get Magic Circle quality service, you get our brains, but without the ginormous price tag of our competitors,’ Joe Vaitilingam tells Spear’s when asked to detail his firm’s offering.
Vaitilingam Kay might be a new kid on the block, but it was built on the solid foundations of the fast-talking Vaitilingam’s twenty years’ experience. There’s also no doubting his calibre, with one senior partner dubbing him ‘a real star in the making’.
A former Hughes Fowler Carruthers partner of ten years’ standing, Vaitilingam and former Mishcon partner Anne Kay make up a boutique powerhouse. Its size doesn’t limit its disruptive ambitions: it has recently taken on ‘mega-money cases’.
The Moorgate firm also uses Cloud-based systems which make a compelling value proposition to clients: ‘We’re more modern than most — we have technology in a way that cuts costs, which means our fees are lower.’
Such innovation is necessary, he says, as the lack of clarity and the increasing complexity in family law have spawned a ‘ludicrous’ volume of family lawyers scrambling after cases with the biggest sum at stake. ‘This is why you’ve got 50 top divorce lawyers in your list,’ he says of our Index. ‘When I first started doing this there’d be barely 50 lawyers at the annual conference for divorce lawyers — now there are 500.’
