Silk Family Law retains its position as one of the North’s leading family law firm by maintaining its top tier ranking in independent legal guide, Legal 500, for the eleventh year running.

According to Legal 500 (2022):

“The ‘seamless team’ at boutique firm Silk Family Law is regularly sought out by high-net-worth business owners, landowners and farmers to handle complex finance cases arising from divorce and separation. The practice benefits greatly from the presence of experienced in-house barrister Ian Kennerley, and was recently further strengthened by the arrival of solicitor Eleanor Lowes from the London office of Mills & Reeve LLP. Other recommended group members include founding partner Kim Fellowes, ‘class act’ Margaret Simpson and Wayne Lynn, who specialises in the growing areas of cohabitation agreements and pre- and post-nuptial arrangements. Several practitioners at the firm also have notable expertise in children law issues.”

“Teresa Davidson leads the ‘exceptional team’ at Silk Family Law in Leeds. Covering the full spectrum of family law, the firm is notably strong in divorce, financial disputes, children matters (including live with orders, adoption, abduction and special guardianship) and nuptial agreements. In addition, the practice handles cohabitation agreements, civil partnerships, Inheritance Act claims and complex matters pertaining to injunctive/emergency relief. Harriet Reid and associate Matthew Miles are other key contacts.”

Silk Family Law has offices in Newcastle, North Yorkshire and Leeds, advising and representing clients across the UK in all aspects of matrimonial and family law cases.
