We are delighted to have retained our Tier 1 ranking in the Chambers 2018 Guide for Leeds, Bradford and surrounding areas – where we have more leading experts in family law listed than any other firm of our kind.

The UK Guide, Chambers 2018 describes our practice as, “A very strong firm – not just in finance but also in children cases.” It adds, “Expertise in dealing with financial remedy nuptial cases adds depth to their practice.”

Four of our solicitors retain their listings as Leading Individuals – director Richard Peaker, founder Peter Jones, head of the children department Kate Banerjee and collaborative law guru, Norman Taylor.
