Frances Hughes and Mark Harper are listed as two of the Best Divorce Lawyers in London by Tatler

Frances Hughes has been listed as one of the best divorce lawyers in London by Tatler.

“To be at the top, you need two qualities at the same time,’ says the no-nonsense Frances Hughes. ‘You need to be tough and empathetic. It’s an odd combination.’ Hughes has both in spades – her clients (art-world, music and financial types) respect her because she will go to the wall for them: ‘They feel a sense that someone is going to fight their corner. In a negotiation, I am always going to look for what is in their best interests.’ She’s a seriously good listener. It’s not surprising, then, to hear that she’s a proper music buff – a viola player in a string quartet, no less.”

Frances is also listed in Tatler’s HNW Address Book as one of the leading family lawyers in their trusted network of A-List private client advisers with “gilt-edged” expertise.

Mark Harper is also listed in the article as one of the best divorce lawyers in town.
