The Family Law Awards is the biggest event of its kind in the UK and Corbett Le Quesne won Family Law Firm of the Year: South at an awards ceremony in London yesterday evening. Corbett Le Quesne is the first firm in the Channel Islands to be shortlisted for or win this honour.
The Family Law Awards celebrate the family lawyers who have made exceptional contributions, the firms who are innovative and community focused and the cases that are ground breaking and transformative.
The judging panel was made up of representatives of the Family Law Bar Association, Resolution, the Association of Lawyers for Children, and CILEx along with Family Law editors and publishing executives.
The judges were particularly impressed by Corbett Le Quesne’s HR service which offers legal assistance to businesses who wish to support employees going through relationship breakdown. It offers businesses direct access to one of the firm’s family lawyers should they have staff in crisis.
Advocate Nicholas Le Quesne commented: “We are delighted to receive this recognition, particularly given that there was a strong field of very well established English family law firms shortlisted for this award. We are also proud that the judging panel recognised the importance of our innovative HR support service.”
Advocate Barbara Corbett said “We are thrilled that our team of specialist family lawyers has been acknowledged in this way. To be the first ever Channel Island law firm shortlisted for this award was a very pleasant surprise but to win is a real honour and is testament to the hard work of our team.”« Back to Blog
