Family lawyers have to be both intellectually and emotionally astute,’ says Farrer & Co’s Claire Gordon, whom one peer describes as ‘a reassuring, trusted presence who grasps complex issues quickly ’. She started at Farrer as a trainee almost 20 years ago, and now covers divorce, complex financial settlements involving trust and international aspects, private law children matters, civil partnerships and international pre- and post-nups, and has also carved out a niche in complex private equity cases, including advising an international private equity company in relation to a billion-dollar investment in the context of the divorce of one of its senior figures. ‘It’s never dull,’ Gordon insists.
