We are thrilled to celebrate two successes at the British Family Law Awards 2024. Edward Cooke Family Law has been named Boutique Family Law Firm of the Year 2024, and Edward has been highly commended in the Family Mediator of the Year Award.
The inaugural British Family Law Awards, hosted by Today’s Media recognised and celebrated the work of practitioners up and down the country. The event took place in the historic city of Bristol, hosted by former BBC News anchor turned family mediator Joanna Gosling.
The event refreshingly included a strong focus on networking with industry peers before and after the award ceremony. Attended by Edward Cooke and Lauren Guy, it provided a great opportunity to connect with like-minded family law professionals from across the UK.
We were incredibly proud to have been shortlisted in three categories in the Awards, amongst some exceptional talent across the industry:

About the British Family Law Awards 2024
The British Family Law Awards was developed by Today’s Media to be a wholly independent event, bringing the very best of the family law community together from across the country. There are 14 categories, all with carefully curated criteria, designed to showcase the incredible work of lawyers who work tirelessly to promote and provide access to justice for so many.
Each entry was reviewed by a panel of experts from across the family and wider legal sector, to consider which firms and individuals have gone above and beyond their peers in supporting their clients and leading the way in the industry. We were one of 44 firms to have been shortlisted across the 14 categories.
Today’s Family Lawyer is a trade publication at the forefront of current affairs in family law, providing a daily news resource for practitioners across the family law services spectrum including family lawyers, mediation and arbitration specialists, barristers and members of the judiciary. Its reporting is independent of regulators and influence and since launching in 2019 it is the fastest growing online news publication dedicated to the family law community.
“It was through this editorially independent lens that the concept for the British Family Law Awards was conceived. The British Family Law Awards is a wholly independent event bringing the very best of the family law community together to recognise and celebrate excellence and success”
Says David Opie, Managing Editor.
“Given the scrutiny of the judging process, winning one of these prestigious awards can be regarded as a badge of honour; an expression of excellence; something that fellow practitioners and consumers alike can identify with.
“It’s been a privilege to preside over this event which recognises the incredible work of practitioners who provide so many people, often at difficult times of life, with access to justice.”
