Fiona Shackleton

Baroness Shackleton of Belgravia is Britain’s most feared and revered divorce lawyer. It’s not just Spear’s saying this, but her peers in the profession too.

We asked members of the 2020 edition of our Family Law Index to say who they would instruct in their own – hypothetical – divorce. In reply, her name was uttered more than any other. One observer remarks that she is ‘probably the greatest family lawyer of all time’. Shackleton almost never speaks to the media, but her cases – and outfits – are pored over by the press.

Clients have included Prince Charles, Paul McCartney, Stephen Hawking, Liam Gallagher and Princess Haya bint Hussein of Jordan.
