BTO Solicitors LLP has ‘a wealth of experience in all areas of family law’ and is particularly well versed in dealing with financial provision and child law cases. The firm is singled out for its expertise in complex international child custody cases, including adoption and surrogacy matters. ‘Tenacious’ team head Cath Karlin provides ‘straightforward advice’ and attracts praise for her ‘substantial experience in public child law cases; she is a safe pair of hands in financial provision matters’. She acted for a client in a child abduction case, and handled a number of surrogacy petitions. Lesley Gordon (a ‘thorough, well-prepared and tough negotiator’) advised a client on sexual offence matters, and assisted another individual with financial provision and contentious child residence issues. ‘Extremely helpful and competent’ associate Marjory Blair is also recommended.
