The Chambers High Net Worth 2022 Guide describes Dawson Cornwell as a well-respected family law boutique firm. "They are very successful and they have a good reputation in the market," says a source, adding: "They do complex matters for high net worth clients, and they have an amazing reputation for their children work as well."
The firm is particularly well regarded for cross-border work. "They're just a massive name in the business," says an interviewee; "they've got the international skills, the linguistic skills and connections, and many of their partners are fellows of the International Academy of Family Law. They're well connected - if you have a case involving a foreign jurisdiction, they likely will have someone who knows the language and knows someone in that jurisdiction."
