We are ranked in the Legal 500

02.11.2018

We are delighted to announce that we have been ranked in the Legal 500, an astounding achievement when you consider our firm is not quite one year old! This ranking is testament to the hard work and extraordinary talent of everyone who makes up our Family Law team.

 

 

 

We are described as follows: McAlister Family Law is a newly assembled team comprising a number of heavy hitters formerly from other well-established Manchester firms - it is "one to watch’". "Leading light" Amanda McAlister, Liz Cowell and Fiona Wood all joined from Slater and Gordon. McAlister’s primary specialisms are dealing with complex pensions, and divorce cases with an international element. Cowell is an "excellent communicator and is enormously experienced. She has a lot of commercial nous and brings great insights to each case that she handles’. The "thorough, hardworking and meticulous" Wood is a "splendid lawyer with an uncanny ability to reality-check any situation". Associate Charlotte Percy has a "wealth of experience and compassion".

 

The McAlister team has unrivalled expertise in every aspect of family and child law: from divorce and the dissolution of civil partnerships, to pensions, pre-nuptial agreements, child arrangement orders, family arbitration and child advocates - and more.  In less than one year the firm has grown exponentially, and there is much more to come.
