Top Recommended Family Lawyers
‘She is known for just getting on with it, and it’s her tenacity and feminist principles that make a huge difference to her clients,’ says Keystone Law of Susan Apthorp, its new partner hire to its growing family department. Apthorp had spent more than a decade as one of Sears Tooth’s most formidable lawyers.
Her greatest success was in Brack v Brack, where in the Court of Appeal she overturned a ruling subjecting her client to an ‘unfair agreement’, despite having been warned by eminent lawyers that her case was unwinnable.
Apthorp also specialises in cases involving international relocation and provision for children with complex medical needs.
