Burgess Mee named Best Boutique Family Law Firm at eprivateclient Excellence Awards

Burgess Mee is delighted to have been named Best Boutique Family Law Firm at the eprivateclient Excellence Awards last night at a black tie gathering at The Langham Hotel in London.

The judging panel was particularly impressed with Burgess Mee’s appointment of the UK’s first fertility officer, demonstrating the firm’s commitment to the wellbeing of its staff members and their families. Natalie Sutherland, an expert in surrogacy law, provides a point of contact for staff who can offer practical and emotional support and guidance on a confidential basis - assisting in dispelling the idea that becoming a mother is fatal to one’s career.

The judges also valued an initiative launched by Burgess Mee over the past year to significantly strengthen the firm’s client service provision.  The Cross Check offers clients a comprehensive, fixed fee package of expert advice on navigating the legal, financial and emotional aspects of relationship breakdown.

The eprivateclient Excellence Awards are focused exclusively on recognising the outstanding achievements of eprivateclient’s top-ranked firms across the UK and offshore legal, tax, fiduciary and advisory professions over the past calendar year.

Peter Burgess said: 

“This prestigious award is a testament to the wealth of talent and expertise within our growing firm.  It is a welcome pat-on-the-back for the whole team for its dedication, professionalism and thoughtfulness - shown not only towards our clients but also to each other as we all navigate our way through the challenges of a busy practice and our individual domestic lives.  We would like to thank eprivateclient for this valued recognition.”
