Thomas Mansfield’s Family team named in national legal guide

Thomas Mansfield Solicitors’ Family team continues to be recognised by The Legal 500, a leading legal directory which analyses and ranks law firms across the UK on the quality of their expertise, client service and standing in the market.

The achievement comes as the team, led by Susi Gillespie, continues to grow rapidly, adding headcount and increasing the complexity of client mandates. Thomas Mansfield’s Family team advises on divorce and separation and a broad range of family law issues, including mediation and collaborative law.

The directory commends the team for its “expertise and great strength in all areas of family law” and “excellent lawyers who provide the best possible mix of knowledge, invaluable experience, sound and reliable advice, efficiency, commitment and support”. Kate Denham is singled out for her “warm and sympathetic manner with clients”.

Rankings are based purely on merit and reflect feedback provided to the directory from a broad cross-section of clients, lawyers within competitor practices, and other professionals.

Head of Family, Susi Gillespie, said: “We’re extremely proud that our 16-strong team continues to be ranked by The Legal 500 as one of the best family law firms in the Kent, Surrey and Sussex region. We pride ourselves on achieving the best possible outcome for our clients in a compassionate, timely and cost-effective manner, so it is very satisfying to see our hard work acknowledged.”
