Helen Ward

Spear’s Review

‘Not merely one of the best, but the best family lawyer in London.’ That’s what Lewis Marks KC once told Spear’s when asked what he thought about Helen Ward of Stewarts.

Ward won the Spear’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015 after judges praised her for being ‘a giant of our industry’ who has ‘steel’ as well as ‘a ferocious appetite for work’ (she is known for her working-all-hours approach). 

She attracts clients with the highest profiles and has fought for the likes of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Paloma Picasso, Guy Ritchie and the Countess Spencer.

One client famously described her as possessing ‘a mind like a Swiss watch, and a warm heart – a rare combination’. They added: ‘When she is on your case she is a tigress who never sleeps.’
