Nigel Shepherd

Big cheers at the Family Law Awards last night when Nigel Shepherd, former chair of family law group Resolution, received the Cornell award for outstanding contribution to family law. Shepherd, a partner at national firm Mills & Reeve, has long been a vociferous campaigner for no-fault divorce. Such is his dedication that, he revealed, last year for his birthday his grandchildren gave him a hoodie on which they stencilled ‘#nofaultdivorce’. 

Sadly, Shepherd decided against wearing his birthday hoodie to the glittering ceremony in London, opting to don a tux instead.
