Charles Russell Speechlys pick up dual wins at this year’s Jordan’s Family Law Awards
We are delighted to announce that our Family team won two awards at the 2016 Jordan’s Family Law Awards.
The whole team were recognised as ‘Family Law Regional Firm of the Year in London’. Sarah Higgins, Head of the Family group accepted the award and described this as a “marvellous achievement” and “recognition of all the hard work put in by everyone in the team.”
Partner Sarah Anticoni won an individual award for Family Law Dispute Resolution Practitioner of the Year. William Longrigg, immediate past President of the International Academy of Family Lawyers said, “This is a truly well-deserved result for Sarah. As one of the leading lawyers in the alternative dispute resolution arena, this has come at an appropriate time.”
Jordan’s Family Law Awards recognise the importance of the work Family lawyers do and celebrate the many successes and outstanding achievements of the talented individuals in this field across England and Wales.
