Silk Family Law has retained its top tier status as one of the leading firms in the UK in the Legal 500, announced this week.


All four partners were named in the research with Margaret Simpson awarded one of only two places in the Legal 500 Hall of Fame, Kim Fellowes and Ian Kennerley – who is also an in-house barrister – cited as ‘Leading Individuals’ and Wayne Lynn named ‘Next Generation Partner’.


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.


Margaret Simpson said: “The team has worked tirelessly in some very challenging times and we could not be more thankful for the skill, commitment and hard work that everyone has shown here at Silk.


“I am delighted to once again be recognised as one of the regions leading Family Lawyers. I was thrilled to read the client testimonials cited in the research which said we provide clear, efficient, well-informed legal counsel and that as a team we work closely together. It means our clients feel confident knowing we are behind them when it comes to difficult and emotional family law cases.”
