Coram has won Family Law Chambers of the Year, London, at the 2019 Family Law Awards.
This award is the product of a huge amount of work over many years from everyone at Coram, so we are pleased to be able to offer our thanks to all our staff and our members for everything they do. Chambers’ ongoing development as one of the country’s leading family law specialist sets is a testament to the talent of our people, first and foremost, but would not be possible without the working partnerships we have with those who instruct chambers, and the other organisations and professionals we work with.
We are pleased that the judges recognised not only Coram’s involvement in a large number of recent precedent-setting cases and our expanding areas of expertise, but also our proven commitment to diversity and serving the community.
We were also delighted that Julia Queen won this year’s award for Family Law Young Barrister of the Year, the judges noting that Julia has dealt with a complex array of cutting-edge cases on some incredibly difficult topics, with a focus on vulnerable children. Furthermore, her consultancy for Ofsted as well as her commitment to pro-bono work was rightly recognised.
Finally we would like to congratulate Matthew Richardson, who was a finalist for this year’s Family Law Commentator of the Year award. Matthew’s writing and public speaking on matters ranging from wellbeing for family lawyers, to pensions on divorce, to parental alienation, has been widely and rightly praised.
This year’s awards develop from Coram’s success in the awards in 2018, and show that chambers continues to maintain its place as a centre for excellence in family law.
