We’re delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted in two categories for the LexisNexis Family Law Awards 2019.

The awards were launched nine years ago, in order to recognise and celebrate the crucial work done by family lawyers and the contribution they make to society.

Lyons Davidson has been nominated in the category of Family Law Firm of the Year – South award, sponsored by Rhea Family Finance, alongside Brachers, Brethertons Solicitors, Boardman Hawkins & Osborne and Stephens Scown.

In addition, Philippa Morgan, head of our Family Law Department, is on the shortlist for the Family Law Chartered Legal Executive of the Year award, sponsored by Lextox. Philippa is nominated alongside Vanessa Gilbanks  of Gillbanks Family Law, Linsey McDonald of Switalskis Solicitors and Pam Sanghera of Charles Strachan Solicitors. Philippa specialises in a very complex area of law, which involves international disputes over children, including parental abduction, and she has worked on several notable international children cases over the past ten years. This area of law is exceedingly sensitive and Philippa helps her clients when they are at their most vulnerable. This category is one of three awards that will be decided by a vote by those in the family law sector.

The shortlist was selected by a panel of heads of the Family Law Bar Association, Resolution and the Association of Lawyers for Children, as well as the editors of Family Law and publishing executives.

The awards ceremony will be held on 27 November at the South Bank Centre’s Ballroom.
