Family & Divorce

When a family relationship breaks down, the situation is stressful and requires sympathetic and practical advice in order to steer the matter to resolution.

Our experienced team of leading family lawyers provides pragmatic, commercial, supportive and caring advice. As leaders in family law with significant technical expertise, we aim to offer decisive advice at all stages, always mindful of the realities of family finances and your strategic goals. No case is too big or too complex, including at the more complex end, high net worth cases with international and offshore assets, and disputes as to the jurisdiction of the English Courts.

We are driven by a desire to find cost-effective, practical solutions to meet your objectives. Our team will always explore alternative dispute resolution methods that avoid determination by the court wherever that is practicable, as detailed below. Equally, our lawyers are very experienced in Court processes and are prepared to take your case to court, if that is what is required to get the right result for you.

We are equally as experienced in dealing with pre-and post-nuptial agreements, living together agreements and disputes between cohabitees. Whatever the case, your matter will always be handled with sensitivity and discretion.

We aim to give realistic and clear advice so that you can make informed decisions at the earliest possible stage in your case, ensuring that unrealistic goals are not pursued and, hopefully, curtailing unnecessary and costly litigation.
