Graeme Fraser, a Partner at Finchley law firm OGR Stock Denton Solicitors, has been named as a finalist at the 2018 Family Law Awards for his role as a key commentator for the specialist area of law.
Having appeared recently on both BBC local radio and Channel 5 News to share his expertise on cohabitation, Graeme has become a regular speaker on family law matters, often representing both his firm and Resolution – the national organisation of family law specialists – as the Chair of its Cohabitation Committee.
Thanks to his position in the complex field of Family Law, judges at the awards were quick to recognise his prominence as a regular commentator providing sound bites for national newspaper titles and comments to legal journals, such as the Law Gazette, which is why they have shortlisted him for the prestigious national title.
However, now the experienced solicitor is calling on clients, colleagues, peers and the public to vote for him to win later this year.
Speaking about his success and the upcoming public vote, Graeme said: “I am extremely privileged to be in this position and I am delighted that the judges have decided to select me for the shortlist.
“In the last year, I have been very fortunate to have my views and knowledge shared by a variety of publications, which I hope has proved beneficial to my fellow lawyers and the public alike.”
He said that cohabitation and the issues surrounding the rights of unmarried couples living together continued to be a hot topic, adding that with family dynamics changing it was likely to remain a contentious issue that interests a wide range of publications in the years to come.
“I am hoping that with the support of my colleagues and members of the public who have benefited from my expertise I will be able to garner enough votes to take the title home,” added Graeme.
Graeme will find out if he has won the award at a ceremony due to be held at The Ballroom South Bank on 28 November 2018.
