Jones Myers in final line up of national excellence awards

Jones Myers is a finalist in the nationwide nationwide eprivateclient Excellence Awards which recognise firms who consistently provide outstanding levels of service to their clients.

Criteria for the inaugural honours includes delivering appropriate and effective solutions to meet clients’ objectives, innovation in services and community and social impact.

Said Jones Myers Partner, Nicki Mitchell: “We are honoured to be shortlisted in the Family Law Firm (boutique) category and warmly congratulate all the finalists. Our practice was launched in 1992 with a commitment to deliver exceptional levels of client care and service and we are delighted this has been recognised by the judges.”

Jones Myers is a long-standing member of family law group Resolution which promotes dealing with relationship breakdowns in a constructive and non-confrontational manner and champions putting children’s best interests first.  

We are at the forefront of offering processes which include mediation, collaborative law and arbitration and aim to avoid the delays, stress and costs associated with going to court.  

If, however, the court route is a client’s only option, we are highly experienced in litigation in local and national Family Courts, High Courts and in the Court of Appeal.

The awards criteria also include the experience of our 30-strong family team based across Leeds, Harrogate, and York as we continue to include the best lawyers in our field.

Their extensive expertise spans a former Deputy District Judge, a Family Law Arbitrator, a former national chair of Resolution, mediators, collaborative family law experts and a Barrister. 

Our empathetic ethos includes making our skills and expertise available to the vulnerable and those most in need. Giving back to our communities and developing the next generation of lawyers is also embedded in our culture.  

The awards shortlisting follows Jones Myers being selected by our peers to feature in the latest edition of The Best Lawyers in the United Kingdom.

Director and Partner Richard Peaker, Founder Peter Jones, and Collaborative Family Law expert Norman Taylor retain their listing for the 14th consecutive year. Partner Kate Banerjee, who heads our internationally renowned Children’s Department, is featured for the first time.  

The winners of the eprivate Excellence Awards will be announced on Thursday via a live virtual gala event.
