A rising legal force respected for her pragmatism, empathy and clear advice, Katharine Landells is described by market authorities as ‘a real powerhouse’. ‘Family law has not been touched by government for decades, except to withdraw funding, to withdraw legal aid, to effectively have a system where everyone is a litigant in person with no real idea about what to do,’ she says. ‘That would be fine if we had a simple law that people could apply on their own, but family law in this country isn’t simple – our principal statute is from 1973. It’s been so neglected and it continues to be.’ She adds: ‘It’s really shocking when you think how much life has changed since then.’
