Stewarts has again been awarded a Tier 1 ranking in the 2019 ePrivateclient Top Family Law Firms rankings.
The rankings are now in their fourth year and this year feature 52 law firms across three different tiers. There are 11 firms considered in Tier 1. The total number surveyed is up from last year, when only 46 firms made the final rankings.
The Top Family Law Firms rankings are centred on a survey of law firms throughout the UK. The firms have been selected on the back of a thorough assessment of 10 factors, of which six key criteria are published in the rankings. These factors include their reputation, quality of service, performance over the past year, how they are viewed by other bodies and publications, and the extent of their UK offering.
The published data includes the number of family law partners, the number of family law fee-earners, total family law staff, fee income, family law fee income as a percentage of total firm-wide income and the number of new solicitors recruited in the past year. Where firms did not provide data, ePrivateclient used its market knowledge to make estimates, which are clearly marked.
Stewarts performs well against all benchmarks within the list, particularly regarding strength and depth of the team, with 10 partners and 31 fee earners. The average size of the team within the list in 2019 is 5.2 partners and 16 fee earners per law firm.
