Caroline ParkHughes Fowler Carruthers

Hughes Fowler Carruthers is one of the leading niche family law firms in London that is led by the ‘phenomenalFrances Hughes. It is ‘always at the top of its game‘ and consists of eight excellent partners who continue to be involved in a very high number of reported cases – they are ‘ferocious opponents and fearless litigators ‘. It receives a steady flow of instructions in the huge money cases (in excess of £1bn) and pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements where there is a significant cross-jurisdictional dimension. It also boasts substantial expertise in the legal issues surrounding same sex relationships and contested children cases. Pauline Fowler who is ‘brilliant at resolving the trickiest of cases‘ had another busy year attracting a range of new instructions from the internationally wealthy. Alex Carruthers (a ‘master tactician‘) continues to impress with his work for ultra-high-net-worth individuals on a wide range of matters. Mark Harper also garners praise along with the other key members of the team who include Renato Labi and Caroline Park . It remains ‘one of the strongest finance litigation teams in the country‘. Clients get a ‘6 star experience‘.
