James Stewart, Anna Worwood and Edward Floyd from Penningtons Manches’ family law team have been included in Spear’s Magazine’s list of the country’s top 50 family lawyers.
James is listed as a Top Recommended lawyer and described as 'one of the most visible faces in UK family law'. As the co-head of his firm’s private wealth team, he has been acting in some of the most complex and high-value divorce cases in London over the past year. Spear’s notes the importance he gives to privacy and how this is particularly valued by his UNHW clients. Anna is also listed a Top Recommended lawyer and described as 'one of the brightest family lawyers in London'. A leading authority on relocation, she has worked on a slew of reported cases and has authored a popular guide on the subject. Ed, included in the list for the first time, appears in the Rising Star section. Spear’s notes that he is credited by leading silks as being ‘head and shoulders’ above his peers and that much of his caseload carries an Anglo-Russian dimension, enabling him to draw upon his Russian language skills.
Spear's Magazine is a bimonthly publication for high net worth individuals and those in the financial services industry. It has been called 'the bible of the banking fraternity' and a 'European rival to Forbes'.
