Head of Family team wins prestigious award

Head of the Family team at Michelmores, Daniel Eames, has been awarded the title 'International Family Lawyer of the Year' at this year's Family Law Awards.

The Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of family lawyers in the UK; Daniel's shortlisting is testament to his nationally recognised expertise and reputation in this area as well as his significant contributions to the international family law sphere.

Daniel is a recognised expert in international family law. His reputation consistently results in high calibre instructions from high-net-worth clients, both nationally and internationally. Not only is Daniel well known for his aptitude in supporting clients who require specialist assistance in navigating highly complex and emotive matters, he has also been responsible for informing policy decisions in this area of law.

Daniel chairs Resolution's International Committee, is a fellow of the International Academy of Family Lawyers and also a member of Lord Justice Moylan's International Family Law Committee. He was the only solicitor to give evidence to the Justice Select Committee on the impact of Brexit on international family law and is part of a select group of international family law specialists who have been advising the Ministry of Justice on the relevant domestic legislation needed to replace the previous EU regulations.

Michelmores' Managing Partner, Tim Richards, said:

"Many congratulations to Daniel on this award which is very well deserved. This accolade is always hotly contested and a shortlisting alone is considered to be a major achievement so we are all extremely proud of Daniel on his win. It is not only fantastic recognition of Daniel's established and highly respected work in this field, but also a nod to our dedicated Family team and private wealth offering. Well done to Daniel."   

Daniel said:

"I am incredibly honoured to have won the International Family Lawyer of the Year Award 2021. The calibre of the other nominees was extremely high, and so I feel very proud that my contributions to the international law sphere have been recognised by this prestigious accolade. It was a fantastic evening and as ever a great opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of family solicitors nationally. Congratulations to all other Family Law Awards winners and nominees."
