Once again Dawson Cornwell has been recognised in this prestigious list of the most highly regarded law firms in any of 26 categories covering business, public and private-client fields. We are commended in Family Law. Statistica, an international market research firm, asked solicitors and barristers in England and Wales to recommend the best law firms. Those with the most votes from more than 4,500 respondents made it into this exclusive list. To ensure that the survey was fair, respondents were not allowed to choose their own law firm and votes were scrutinised to prevent anyone from voting more than once.
Three of our high profile cases have been selected for praise: partner Charlotte Conner’s Court of Appeal case in which she successfully represented a man who had been an unemployed house husband throughout his 11 year marriage and was awarded £625,000 lump sum payment; and two of partner Carolina Marin Pedreño’s cases, one a Supreme Court case concerning the complex interplay between asylum legislation and international child abduction and the other addressing the forensic challenges in dealing with a significant history of coercive and controlling behaviour.
