Family Law Chambers of the Year – Regional 201830.11.18
We are delighted to announce that Spire Barristers have been awarded Family Law Chambers of the Year – Regional at this year’s Family Law Awards.
Joint Head of Chambers, Taryn Lee QC said after the awards:
“This award is testament to our great team of barristers & staff and our fantastic clients old & loyal and new.”
Senior Clerk to Chambers, Leigh Royall went on to say:
“The recognition with this award, by The Family Law Awards as being Chambers of the Year validates the decision taken by our Members to become one of only two specialist Family & Public Law sets outside of London little over 18 months ago. This specialisation by Chambers, with one of the largest and most dynamic teams of barristers on circuit, has enabled us to offer a focused and dedicated service to our clients and members alike, centred on excellence in this specialist area of work
We were shortlisted with some of the best regional Chambers, and there was a strong North-Eastern Circuit presence, with Broadway House Chambers and Park Square Barristers also both being nominated. This demonstrates Leeds as the first choice for clients in Family Law practice which is unrivalled outside of London.”
Family law community gathers in London for the annual Family Law Awards
Nearly 600 barristers, solicitors, judges, academics and other family law practitioners gathered in central London for the prestigious annual Family Law Awards.
During the eighth annual awards ceremony – once again at the glamorous Ballroom South Bank – guests and sponsors hailed the hard work, drive and successes of individuals, firms and chambers from all over the U.K. Some of London’s biggest chambers and a range of regional firms were present, including Geldards, Stevens & Bolton, Turner Nicholson as well as Redkite Solicitors from Wales.
Most winners were chosen by a judging panel made up of the heads of the Family Law Bar Association, Resolution, CILEx and the Association of Lawyers for Children, along with Family Law and LexisNexis editors and executives. In keeping with tradition, three of this year’s awards were voted for by the family law community, Chartered Legal Executive, Commentator and the Clerking Team awards.
