Grainne Fahy is shortlisted for Family Law Partner of the Year at the Family Law Awards 2021 and Yasmin Khan-Gunns takes home two accolades

Grainne Fahy, Partner and Head of BLM’s Family department in England & Wales, was shortlisted for the Family Law Partner of the Year Award 2021. Yasmin Khan-Gunns, Associate in BLM’s London Family department, was shortlisted for the Family Law Young Solicitor of the Year Award and Family Law Commentator of the Year Award 2021.

Yasmin won both awards. The Young Solicitor of the Year award was chosen by a judging panel made up of the heads of the Family Law Bar Association, Resolution and the Association of Lawyers for Children, along with Family Law editors and publishing executives. The Commentator of the Year award was voted for by the family law community.

The Family Law Awards were launched in 2011 to recognise the important work of family lawyers, and celebrate their many successes and outstanding achievements.

Earlier this month, Yasmin was also awarded the Family Lawyer of the Year (Associate Award) at this year’s Future Leaders Awards, hosted by Citywealth. The Awards seek to support future leaders who excel at work and who also make an important contribution to society.

Yasmin qualified in January 2019 and was promoted to Associate in April 2021. She is a member of both Resolution Law and is committed to supporting people with their family law rights through her legal Instagram account, @londonfamilysolicitor, on which she breaks down family law and regularly collaborates with other organisations and charities.
