For more than 30 years, the Legal 500 has been analysing the capabilities of law firms across the world, with a comprehensive research programme which assesses the strengths of law firms in over 150 jurisdictions and has just released its findings for this year.

Silk is a specialist family law firm with offices in North Yorkshire, Leeds and Newcastle and this accolade cements its excellent reputation for dealing with all aspects of separation, divorce, civil partnerships, nuptial agreements and children issues.

Kim Fellowes said: “We are very pleased to be recognised once again for our technical expertise and depth of knowledge in family law. The Tier 1 ranking is a result of the hard work and commitment shown by every member of the Silk Team.

Thanks go to everyone because whilst certain people might be recognised as leading individuals, the work that all of the lawyers undertake, would not be possible without everyone in the team, including the support staff.”
