Lodders’ Family Law team shortlisted at Family Law Awards

We’re pleased to share that Lodders’ Family Law team has been shortlisted for “Family Law Case of the Year”, at this year’s Family Law Awards, for their work on the high-profile Mills v Mills case.

Beverley Morris represented Graham Mills in the Court of Appeal and then subsequently in the Supreme Court. The case was primarily about the court’s approach to spousal maintenance awards, with the Supreme Court overturning the Court of Appeal decision, in favour of Graham Mills.

Of note, the work was undertaken by the team on a pro-bono basis as the Crowdfunding operation that Graham undertook only raised funds to meet court fees which, in the Supreme Court, are significant.

The victory in the Supreme Court led to subsequent compromises being reached between the parties.

Commenting on the case in February 2020, Graham Mills said:

“It is very hard to believe that my financial ties to my ex are finally over, a very long and frustrating road but it was clearly worth sticking at. Beverley has done a great job and I am very grateful for the support, particularly since the Appeal Court.”

“Beverley’s ability to cut through all my various ramblings, frustrations, notes, and documents to get to the salient useable items was essential to the case that we put forward. I am delighted that the deal was done, and it is a massive relief for me and for my son too.”

Online Family Law Awards

Like many events in the current climate, the Family Law Awards have had to move a ‘virtual platform’ this year and will be presented online on 25 November. We shall keep you posted on the outcome.
