Head of Mishcon de Reya's Family department, Sandra Davis has been named one of the Top Flight Family Lawyers in the Spear's Indices 2019.
The Indices reflect Sandra's concern that the divorce process encourages litigation by pitting parents against each other to the detriment of their offspring. She said "Children don’t want to be dropped off at a service station; they want to see their parents having a relationship. Once one parent has started making negative comments about the other, it can be too late."
Resolving children issues can also help with other issues, she says: "If you promote a co-parenting relationship between spouses, we’re going to get more communication, and more communication can ultimately lead to a quicker, less painful settlement."
