Powerful recommendations from peers have resulted in Jones Myers award-winning, niche family lawyers’ inclusion in the 2023 edition of Best Lawyers in the United Kingdom.

Director and Managing Partner, Richard Peaker, applauded as an “outstanding matrimonial finance practitioner” by the Legal 500 guide – which is also based on peer and client testimonials – features for the 15th consecutive year.

An expert in complex financial disputes, Richard heads the firm’s Financial Remedies which Legal 500 hails as “The Leading matrimonial finance firm in Yorkshire, with outstanding individuals and strength in depth”.

The Department is regularly instructed for multi- jurisdictional proceedings/cases involving complex corporate and (often offshore) trust structures. Our clients include business owners, landowners, farmers and parties with substantial family Trusts – both  shore and offshore.

Partner Kate Banerjee, an acknowledged leader in Children’s Law, who is described as a “Rolls-Royce among practitioners,” (Legal 500 2023) keeps her listing for the second year running.

Named ‘”Private Client Lawyer of the Year” in the 2023 Northern Powerhouse Awards, Kate heads the Children’s Department whose 12-stong team succeeds with the most complex cases and is at the forefront of new areas of law including deprivation of a child’s liberty.

The Team consistently achieves a consistently high success rate in international child abduction matters across both Hague and Non-Hague countries.

Said Richard: “Our inclusion among the Best UK Lawyers reflects our reputation as a respected leader in our field on a regional, national, and international level.

“It is also testament to the wider team’s extensive expertise and underpins Jones Myers standing as a top-ranking, niche family law practice which has maintained its number 1 position in the legal guides for over two decades.”

With headquarters in Leeds and offices in Harrogate and York, Jones Myers has retained its number one ranking in top legal guides for over two decades.
