Thrilled to be awarded Family Law Partner of the Year

Edward said:

“I have to admit I was slightly shell-shocked to hear my name called out last night, particularly considering my esteemed fellow nominees for the award from many of the leading firms in London and elsewhere. It’s a great privilege to be recognised in this way - and a thrill to share the moment with some of our team.

I would like to congratulate all the winners and finalists last night. It was a fabulous evening: a true celebration of hard work and dedication across the industry, from individual achievements to whole-team recognition at every stage of the process, including clerks, lawyers, barristers and the talented teams around them, united by steadfast work to deliver the very best to clients.

I’m so proud of this recognition of the work we are doing at Edward Cooke Family Law - and the vision we all share to continue to grow our modern, constructive and forward-thinking firm, and I am honoured to have received this wonderful award.”
