Family Law Awards 2016

Paradigm Family Law are celebrating having been nominated in this year’s prestigious Family Law Awards in three categories, for:

Family Law Regional Firm of the Year (North) 2016

Family Law Partner of the Year 2016 – for James Thornton, Managing Partner, and (for the second year in succession);

International Family Lawyer of the Year 2016 – Frank Arndt, Managing Partner

The Great and the Good

The Family Law Awards recognise the great and the good in many aspects of Family Law. The 6th annual Family Law Awards will be held on Wednesday 23 November at the Bloomsbury Big Top, one of the most exclusive event venues in London.


The nominations represent a significant endorsement of Paradigm Family Law and the Managing Partners’ expertise in the area of family law and we believe recognises the unique approach taken by the firm since it was set up by James and Frank in 2014.

Of the nominations, James Thornton said:

“We are delighted to have been nominated in three categories this year. It is a step up from last year’s nominations when Frank was shortlisted and reached the final four in his category. To be in with a shout for no less than 3 of such prestigious awards is great.

We hoped to build on Frank’s success last year and the fact that we now have a nomination for Regional Law Firm of the Year aswell as individual nominations for both of us in our respective categories is a real boost.

We hope that it reflects the hard work we put in to make sure our clients get the best advice and shows that our fixed fee model is turning heads in the profession as a whole.”

Paradigm Family Law is keeping everything crossed until later in the year when the results of the Awards are decided. Until then Frank and fellow Managing Partner, James will continue to build on the solid foundations upon which the firm has been built.
