Spear’s: Fiona Shackleton - the family lawyers’ choice for divorce advice

In the latest edition of Spear’s magazine, which focuses on family law, Baroness Shackleton features as one of the five women who have established themselves at the top of family law (the ‘Queen Bees’).  Notably, when Spear’s asked family lawyers who they would instruct in their own divorce “the name of Baroness Shackleton was uttered more frequently than any other.”

Fiona’s influence is highlighted in Spear’s look at five of the UK’s largest divorce settlements: she advised in three of the cases shown and, according to the author, her “deft handling” of the £554 million Princess Haya & Sheikh Al Maktoum case “earned her the title of Spear’s Family lawyer of the year”.

She is also an inspiration for a number of family lawyers interviewed for Spear's “Modern family” article focused on the next generation:  “Fiona Shackleton is absolutely amazing, and we work really well with Payne Hicks Beach” comments Georgina Hamblin.
