Berkson Family Law was created by Louis Berkson and Globe solicitors in the 1930s. It was one of only a few solicitors practices in the City that still remain today. Specializing in private client work Louis Berkson and Stanley Globe made their mark in the City as solicitors who cared about the individual: the David against the Goliath.

During the 1980s the practice expanded to include three new partners: Judith Fordham, Valerie Limont, and Chris Darlington. Practicing in Family Law, Criminal Law, Conveyancing, and Personal Injury, the practice grew and grew as it increased in numbers and opened two new offices: one in Cook Street and one in Allerton Road Liverpool. Louis Berkson and Stanley Globe retired from practice during that decade.

Charles Peter became a partner in 1989 and joined the Criminal Department.

In 1997, the practice went through another development stage and decided to expand and concentrate on Family Law matters including Divorce, Children cases, Financial matters, and many more.

In 2002 Adele Schofield joined the practice as a partner specializing in Children Act matters and divorce.

For the last 20 years, we have developed and grown our expertise in this area of law to the extent that we rank among the very very few solicitors in the country that can truly call themselves a specialist family law practice. We’re sure that there will be many more developments in the future as the practice continues to grow.
