The Family Law Awards brings the family law community together for its biggest night of the year, celebrating excellence in the profession.

The Family Law Awards were launched in 2011 to recognise the important work of family lawyers and celebrate their successes and achievements.

Victoria Gethin, partner and head of the family law department at Stephensons said:

“Naturally, we are absolutely thrilled to have been shortlisted for this award.

"Every single member of our team plays a vital role in supporting our clients and guiding them through what are often very challenging circumstances. They do that with sensitivity and the utmost professionalism. I am delighted that their talent and hard work has been recognised alongside some of the North’s finest family law firms.”

The shortlist of firms nominated for awards this year was chosen by a judging panel made up of the heads of the Family Law Bar Association, Resolution, the Association of Lawyers for Children and the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives, along with Family Law editors and publishing professionals.

The Family Law Awards will be held on Monday, November 27 in London.
