Founder and President, Vardags
‘Britain’s top divorce lawyer’, Ayesha Vardag has led her firm in the country’s biggest cases for over a decade. Her impact on English law has been game-changing for women and families. She changed English law on prenuptial agreements in 2010, and through lobbying and campaigning was instrumental in ushering in upcoming reforms which will allow for less destructive, no-fault divorce in England and Wales. A celebrated businesswoman, Ayesha is also shaking things up inside the legal industry. In 2015 she won the Natwest Everywoman Award in recognition of pioneering working practices which, through her much-publicised flexible maternity packages, enable female employees to reach their highest potential in an infamously male-dominated industry.
