Top Recommended Family Lawyers
‘You can’t be a family lawyer if you recoil from the messiness of human life,’ says Renato Labi. Divorces with offshore elements form part of his caseload, as do prenups ‘in the hundreds of millions’ and child relocation matters. He says family lawyers need an aptitude to become ‘temporarily expert’ on different facets of the financial and tech worlds. But he adds that there’s ‘a fine balance’ between the technical and emotional challenges of the work: ‘We’re very expensive and completely unqualified therapists,’ he suggests with humour. Labi, a partner at HFC since 2005, is highly regarded, with one peer hailing him as ‘sharp, smart and always on the front foot’.
