Head of Family Team, Graeme Fraser, has been shortlisted in the Partner of the Year category at the LexisNexis Family Law Awards 2021, while Associate Solicitor, Holly Covington, has been shortlisted in the Young Solicitor of the Year category.
Graeme is a well-respected figure amongst family lawyers, having served in senior committee positions with Resolution, including as current Chair of the Cohabitation Committee, and having recently been appointed to the Family Procedure Rule Committee (FPRC).
He is a past winner of the Family Law Commentator of the Year category at the Family Law Awards and his team was also shortlisted the Family Law Firm of the Year category at the 2020 awards
Meanwhile, up-and-coming Family Solicitor, Holly Covington, was nominated for the Young Solicitor of Year accolade, having impressed since joining the firm in September 2019. Since then, Holly, who qualified in November 2018, has handled complex matters usually reserved for much more experienced lawyers, winning praise from colleagues and senior members of the bar alike.
She also volunteers for the charity, Rights of Women, on the Family Law Advice Line.
Graeme Fraser said: “Family law touches on the fundamental elements of our clients’ lives, finances and identities in ways that few other areas of law do. It is vital that we deliver the best possible service to each and every client, taking every opportunity to reduce unnecessary conflict where possible.
“Holly has really impressed over the last two years. Not only does her technical skill belie her experience, but she has also demonstrated impressive dedication to clients and, particularly to improving outcomes for women in the family justice system.
“I am delighted to have been shortlisted and it is great to see Holly shortlisted too.”
Holly added: “It is wonderful to have been shortlisted and to have been recognised in this way by the judges.
“Our firm is strongly dedicated to its clients and this has allowed me to make a real difference over the last two years.”
The winners of the Family Law Awards 2021 will be announced at a ceremony in London on 24 November 2021.
