About

Welcome to the Westminster Debate, “Supporting families after the riots and the role of family law”. On this site you will find up to the minute information on this debate, which is taking place on Monday 12th December, 2011 in The House of Commons. The debate will examine how, in the wake of the summer riots, the family justice system can play a vital role in supporting families and children, and encouraging family values in today’s complex world.

Family Law in Partnership LLP is co-hosting this event with Researching Reform. Family Law in Partnership is widely recognised as one of the country’s leading family law practices. The firm was the first (and remains the only) practice to bring together lawyers, mediators and counsellors in a holistic approach to the resolution of relationship issues. The firm was instrumental in introducing the practice of collaborative family law to Europe and is widely acknowledged as the top collaborative law firm in London. It has been at the forefront of the Parenting after Parting initiative introduced by the family law group Resolution and is the only firm of lawyers to offer clients in-house parenting workshops.

Through its work with third-party agencies and government in shaping policy in family law, Family Law in Partnership continually seeks to find better ways to help clients negotiate the divorce and separation process. At the heart of everything that the firm does is a desire to use the depth and breadth of expertise of its specialists to provide a solution which is in the best interests of the client. Strong bonds are fostered with clients through the firm’s commitment to a truly partner-led service. Family Law in Partnership LLP was recently named Family Law Firm of the Year 2011.

FLIP also have a blog you can check out, where they comment on the latest family law news and a dedicated About Us section where you can have a look at what they’ve been up to.

We hope you find this site interesting and that it opens up debate on one of the most pressing issues surrounding family policy in Britain today.
