Media, publications and awards

We are often asked to contribute to articles and other publications outside of our own blog so that we can lend our expertise to different issues. Below are some of the recent newspaper articles, books and podcasts that we’ve been featured in together with awards that we’ve been nominated, shortlisted for, or won.


Our Louisa Whitney has been shortlisted, along with 3 others, in this year’s Resolution awards for the Community Champion award. This year’s ceremony takes place on Thursday 19th September so please keep your fingers crossed!

We were delighted that Louisa Whitney was shortlisted for Family law Commentator of the year in 2021. Our commentary is a big part of who we are as we are aware that many of those separating cannot always afford to access lawyers and mediators, and rely on information that is posted online and on social media. We also like to talk about the emotional as well as the legal, financial and practical issues in a separation. As a small business without a big corporate budget the fact that our commentary was shortlisted means a lot to us.
