Andrew Smith

I have built my career on excellent client service and straight-forward, pragmatic advice. I do what I say I am going to do, and I guide my clients in the best direction for their own individual case.

Andrew is a solicitor with over 16 years’ experience in family law.

Andrew specialises in the financial implications of both pre-relationship and post-relationship; including divorce, cohabitee matters, legal issues surrounding same sex families and the dissolution of civil partnerships; and advice on the drafting of nuptial agreements.

Andrew is also an expert in private children law, advising on child arrangements, the removal of children from the jurisdiction, and Schedule 1 Children Act applications.

Andrew has acted for clients across the spectrum of family law, from high-net-worth business owners seeking advice around the division of their matrimonial finances; to non-married couples in disputes regarding the provision of a property for their child; to parents seeking to take their children to live abroad permanently.
