This week, we launched the Spear’s Family Law Index, one of our most important rankings of the year, which features the best solicitors and barristers, as well as divorce consultants and US family lawyers.
It’s an indispensable guide for HNW individuals searching for expertise on divorce, children matters, litigation funding and more. Every adviser in our rankings has been profiled on the Spear’s 500 website, where you can search according to factors such as location and expertise. You can also see the sub-categories of the index in full here:
- The best family lawyers for high-net-worth clients
- The best family law barristers for high-net-worth clients
- The best divorce litigation funding providers for high-net-worth individuals
- The best divorce consultancy and support service providers for high-net-worth clients
- The best US family lawyers for high-net-worth clients
As part of our launch, Ian Douglas, head of the Spear’s Research Unit, takes a closer look at this year’s ‘runners and riders’, shining the spotlight on new entries and those who have risen in our rankings.
Meanwhile, we profile the ‘Queen Bees’ of family law – five top solicitors who have led the field for several decades.
The Spear’s team have also interviewed dozens of top family lawyers for our 2022 survey. They tell us that no-fault divorce has been a welcome change, although many expect the number of HNW divorces to increase in the coming year. Deputy editor Chris Hawes takes a look at the price pressures felt widely by family lawyers, and asks Zoë Bloom and Hannah Budd – the duo behind BloomBudd LLP – how you can get the best value.
Elsewhere, Kingsley Napley’s Ellie Fayle explains everything you need to know about investing in non-fungible tokens (NFTs), including how to stay secure and avoid fraud. And, in time for July’s Open Championships in St Andrews, we’ve also found a prime property that gives you a front-row seat for the golf.
