Irwin Mitchell Makes Big Gains In Leading Family Law Index
Leading national law firm Irwin Mitchell has secured five new rankings for its national Family Law team in the latest Spear’s 2021 Family Law Index.
Spear’s Magazine is one of the most high-profile publications for high-net-worth individuals and financial service industries, with its Spear’s 500 index described as the ‘bible of HNW advisers’.
Director of Family Legal Services and national head of the Family Law team, Ros Bever, and partner Sarah Balfour were both listed as Top Recommended Family Lawyers in the 2021 index.
Partners Nat Groarke and Zahra Pabani enter the listings as Recommended Family Lawyers; meanwhile partner Mark Hands made the rankings as a Rising Star Family Lawyer.
All five are news entries for the index. The rankings are put together with peer recommendations, interviews and information gathered by the Spear’s editorial team to include the best and brightest in the UK family law industry.
Expert Opinion“The Spear’s Family Law guide is so well respected and lists some serious titans in the industry, so these rankings reflect our expertise as a national team and recognise the brilliant individuals across the business.
“When it comes to family law matters, we have a significant wealth of expertise across the country for our clients to draw on – so to have so many new entries in the Spear’s Family Law Index is a huge testament to how the team has flourished in the face of what has been a challenging year for all.
“I want to pay tribute to Spear’s for its consideration and to all of our colleagues who have contributed to our success. Their efforts are crucial for getting successful outcomes for our clients and we wouldn’t be half as successful without them.” Ros Bever - Partner
The rankings are just one of many successes for the national Family Law team; Ros, along with associate Scott Halliday, were named Family Law Partner of the Year and Family Law Young Solicitor of the Year respectively at the 2020 LexisNexis Family Law awards.
