Harrogate Family Law and its founder Andrew Meehan have both achieved the highest possible ranking for family law in the latest legal guide Chambers UK 2018.

Andrew has been ranked by Chambers UK each year since founding Harrogate Family Law seven years ago. This year’s edition describes him as “pragmatic and sensible” with a strong reputation in advising high net worth individuals on financial proceedings arising from divorce.

Harrogate Family Law is recognised by Chambers UK 2018 as a dedicated family law firm with extensive experience advising on challenging divorce and separation claims, prenuptial agreements and cases involving property portfolios and pension issues. The guide also mentions the firm’s expertise in handling cross-border children relocation work and maintenance orders.

The team is noted to be “very efficient, very cost-effective and disciplined.”

Andrew said he was delighted that the firm had been ranked as one of the best family law firms in York, Hull and the surrounding area.

“These top tier rankings for me and my team are especially welcome because they are the result of independent peer research and client feedback.

“The comments by the sources acknowledge our technical excellence as well as our commitment to client care.”

Harrogate Family Law’s ranking by Chambers follows its recent praise by Legal 500 as ‘the best in Harrogate’ for financial proceedings arising from divorce, separation and civil partnership dissolution. Legal 500 also recognised 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’.


Andrew Meehan is individually recommended for family law by both Chambers UK and the Legal 500. He is also a Resolution accredited specialist solicitor for divorce cases involving complex financial and property matters.
