Lake Legal, a specialist family law firm, celebrated its 15th anniversary with outstanding results, including a record-breaking turnover and two award nominations. The firm’s clientele for divorce cases escalated within high-net-worth individuals. According to Claire Glaister, managing partner of Lake Legal, the firm’s exceptional industry reputation and excellence led to its unprecedented growth, indicating that the team is excited to continue expanding in the upcoming year.
The Lexis Nexis Family Law Awards nominated Lake Legal as Family Law Firm of the Year (North) and Brooke Dempsey as Young Lawyer of the Year. The awards winners will be announced this November at the prestigious Park Plaza Hotel in London. Alongside its recognition, the founder of Lake Legal, Lyn Ayrton, is notably growing the arbitration practice, which grants couples going through a divorce to resolve their differences quickly, confidentially, flexibly, and less formally.
Lake Legal has consistently placed in the top tier of the Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 industry bibles, with Lyn and Claire continually recognized for their expertise in family law. As one of Leeds’ only solicitors qualified to arbitrate cases, Lyn and the team’s success in family law have allowed Lake Legal to operate nationally from its Leeds office. Additionally, Lake Legal shows support to several charities across the region, including Leeds Community Foundation, Moor Allerton Bowls Club, and Pannal Cricket Club.
