Legal 500: McAlister Family Law climbs to Tier 2


We are absolutely thrilled to say that we have climbed to Tier 2 in the rankings of legal directory Legal 500. This is an astonishing achievement for a firm that is not yet three years old and is testament to the dedication, hard work and sheer talent of the team, described as being 

"commercially astute, no-nonsense"

Our entry reads:

"Led by managing partner Amanda McAlister, the "commercially astute, no-nonsense" team at McAlister Family Law specialises in three distinct areas of family law: divorce and finance, private children law, and public children law. In the private space, the growing department handles divorce and finance mandates, while its public law team is split into two - one acting for children and parents, and the other for local authorities. Another name to note is Liz Cowell, who represents a number of international clients."


"Fiona Wood was my lawyer. She has always been very reactive and helpful, very easy to communicate with and had a clear strategy to follow."

"The firm has a vast level of experience from the established individuals brought into the practice alongside a progressive training and staff development programme. This ensures the highest quality service to its clients."

"Fiona Wood’s experience gives her the status of one of the best matrimonial finance practitioners in Manchester. She has successfully dealt with cases of high value and complexity, having the knowledge and attention to detail to provide a top tier service."

Named as key lawyers are Liz Cowell, Fiona Wood and Nicola Wilburn-Shaw

A huge well done to everyone!
