We’re Simply The Best… for the 15th Consecutive Year

Jones Myers leading family lawyers feature in the ‘Best Lawyers in the United Kingdom’ 2023 rankings for the 15th consecutive Year following recommendations from their peers.   

The accolade comes in a year when the firm retained its prestigious Family Law Firm of the Year North title in the Family Law Awards. Judges singled out the practice’s skills in MediationCollaborative Law and Arbitration which avoid going to court. 

Director and Partner Richard Peaker (pictured centre) – who heads the Financial Remedies Department and is an expert in complex financial disputes – retains his Best Lawyers listing since 2009.   A specialist in high-net-worth cases, Richard acts for clients including businesses owners, shareholders, lawyers, accountants, and other high-end professionals. He is regularly recommended by clients, barristers, and independent financial advisors.

Peter Jones (pictured right), who founded Jones Myers 30 years ago, also maintains his listing across the same period. A former Deputy District Judge, he was one of country’s first Arbitrators to resolve differences on financial and property matters.  

An ex national chairman of Resolution who chairs Resolution’s Specialist Accreditation Committee, Peter has been presented with two prestigious awards in the past 12 months for his outstanding contribution to family law.

Partner Kate Banerjee (pictured left), an acknowledged leader in Children’s Law who heads Jones Myers Children’s Department, features in the listing for the second year running.  

Lauded by the Legal 500 Guide as a “Rolls-Royce among practitioners,” Kate’s reputation is acknowledged nationally and globally.

Representing children, parents, guardians and local authorities, Kate has extensive expertise in international child abduction cases. Her specialisms also span contact, residence, education law, adoption, and surrogacy.

Said Peter Jones: “We are immensely proud of our reputation as an outstanding niche family law firm which has achieved top rankings in esteemed legal guides for over two decades.

“It is an honour to be recommended for the 15th year running for the Best UK Lawyers by our peers, a recognition which reflects our commitment to consistently delivering excellence in family law.”
