Rising Stars Family Lawyers

Mariko Wilson trained at Anthony Gold under Kim Beatson, and now at FLiP she acts for HNWs, with ‘a particular interest in the tax and pension aspects of divorce’. Personable and impressive, the senior associate regularly acts for people in the professions. ‘At the moment I have a large number of lawyers, mainly partners at large City firms. They are unimpressed by their lawyer sitting on the fence and are looking for precise, robust and decisive advice,’ she explains. So what makes a good family lawyer? ‘It’s very easy to lose sight of the human impact of our work in the cut and thrust of litigation. Remembering that the other side was once your client’s spouse or is the child’s other parent is crucial.’
