Karim Assaad


Family Law

Karim has practised family law at the highest level for over 10 years, and is renowned for his legal expertise and total dedication to the needs of his clients.

He is trusted with the most complex and high-profile matters, and is praised for his strategic thinking, persuasive manner and relentless hard work. Clients regularly consult Karim for a second opinion on cases already in progress, as he is able to provide valuable perceptions and fresh perspectives, highlighting possibilities that might not have been considered previously.

He is especially noted for his Appeal work and second opinions, which can provide a new direction for clients who are unhappy with their legal representation and for his work with male clients: husbands going through a divorce and fathers caught up in family disputes.

Karim works with clients of both genders but offers husbands and fathers special expertise in navigating family breakdown. He played a key role in establishing the UK division of Cordell & Cordell, the largest US firm to specialise in family law for men, and he continues to ensure that men receive equal representation in family disputes.

Karim has been recognised as a leading lawyer in the world of family law and  the Legal 500 directory describe him as someone who ‘works tirelessly for his clients” Legal 500 (2019)
