A family law specialist at award-winning London and Surrey full service law firm Mackrell Turner Garrett has been invited to join an international network that enables businesses and individuals to find high quality legal advisers around the world.

Alison Green, a partner at the firm and head of Family law at its London office, has become a member of The Lawyer Network, an internet-based recommendation and referral service. She is the only recommended family law member in England.

The Lawyer Network provides a guide to legal excellence across a comprehensive range of practice areas in more than 95 countries and is extensively used, receiving up to 25,000 visits each month. Members are vetted for quality and expertise before being accepted by the network.

Alison’s family law expertise includes all aspects of relationship breakdown, international family matters and pre- and post-nuptial agreements, on which she advises clients in the UK and overseas. She is a member of Resolution, the organisation of family lawyers committed to a constructive and non-confrontational approach to family disputes.

She said: “As a founder of Mackrell International, a global network of more than 4,500 lawyers in almost 60 countries, our firm has always had a very strong international dimension to its work, so The Lawyer Network is a natural home for us.

“Family issues can create real distress and  a need for urgency so being able to find a recommended specialist with international expertise, quickly and easily, can be crucial when someone who may be far from their home country needs legal advice in this area.”
