Also lauded as ‘exceptional’ is fellow Leading Individual Kate Banerjee, who heads the Children’s Department.
The guide says: “Kate Banerjee is the best children law solicitor there is in the North of England. She is enormously experienced and has a fantastic manner and way of dealing with things.”
