Harrogate Family Law has been praised for its approach and expertise in the latest edition of Legal 500, published today.

The boutique firm is described by the national guide to the legal profession as ‘the best in Harrogate’ for financial proceedings arising from divorce, separation and civil partnership dissolution.

The listing is based on client feedback which includes comments on the firm’s diligence in ‘leaving no stone unturned; its very quick response times, detailed knowledge and thorough approach amounts to a first-rate level of service’.

Founder Andrew Meehan, who has a long track record of advice in complex divorce proceedings, is singled out for being ‘very thorough in his handling of cases, and a good listener to boot’.

Recent work includes acting in heavily contested financial remedy proceedings, which were resolved in the client’s favour in arbitration.

Andrew said: “We are delighted to be giving the big city firms a run for their money and providing clients in Harrogate and North Yorkshire with robust technical advice and an empathetic approach.

“Where we have always excelled is in identifying potential pitfalls in the road ahead and tackling them early in a way that saves our clients time, money and stress.

“Since launching seven years ago our reputation has grown and we are now one of the best known family law firms in the region. That reputation has been backed up year on year by feedback from organisations like the Legal 500 and Chambers UK and we are very proud to be so highly regarded by both our clients and peers.”
