Jones Myers Features Among Best UK Lawyers

Lawyers from Jones Myers family law firm feature in the ‘Best Lawyers in the United Kingdom’ 2023 edition for the 15th consecutive Year.

The publication recognises the professional excellence of lawyers in their specific fields who have been recommended by their peers.

Director and partner Richard Peaker, an expert in complex financial disputes and high-net-worth cases, retains his inclusion since 2009. He heads the firm’s Financial Remedies Department and is regularly recommended by clients, barristers, and independent financial advisors.

Peter Jones, who founded Jones Myers thirty year ago, also maintains his listing across the same period. A former Deputy District Judge, he was one of country’s first Arbitrators to resolve differences on financial and property matters.

Partner Kate Banerjee, who leads the Children’s Department, features in the edition for the second year running. An acknowledged leader in areas of children’s law including international child abduction, Kate is described by the latest Legal 500 Guide as a “Rolls-Royce among practitioners.”

The accolade comes in a year when the practice, which has offices in Leeds, Harrogate, and York, retained its Family Law Firm of the Year North title in the Family Law Awards.

Founder Peter Jones also received two high-profile awards for his outstanding contribution to the field of family justice
