Family department shortlisted for Family Law Awards 2013
The Family Law Awards were launched by Jordan Publishing to recognise the important work of family lawyers and celebrate their many successes and outstanding achievements. They are a means for Family Law and its readers to acknowledge the hard work and commitment throughout the year amongst the nominees and the profession as a whole.
The 3rd Annual Family Law Awards ceremony takes place on 9 October 2013.
The judging panel includes the heads of the leading family practitioners’ associations, journal editors and important legal figures.
This year the Family department at Turpin & Miller LLP has been shortlisted in the category of ‘Firm of the Year’ alongside three other well known and respected firms.
Emily Boardman, Partner at Turpin & Miller LLP and Head of the Family Department, said that making the shortlist is a huge honour for the young department which was set up in 2006 and has been managed by her since 2007.
It is now a department that spans two offices and the whole spectrum of family law with both partners named in Chambers & Partners.
The department holds legal aid contracts in both offices and has recently opened its mediation service. It has been proactive in launching new services for private clients such as its Face2Face scheme and fixed price packages.
