FAMILY

Our Family team can help you and your children at the start or end of a relationship

OVERVIEW

Our experienced team of leading family lawyers will guide you through the process of divorce or separation, protecting your interests every step of the way. Our expertise in resolving both financial issues and arrangements for children is reflected in our ranking as one of London’s best family law teams.

We are experienced in dealing with complex and high value financial affairs, including family businesses, trusts and international assets.  We help our clients achieve a fair financial settlement following the breakdown of their relationship. For clients at the start of a relationship, we advise on pre-nuptial or cohabitation agreements to provide certainty and security as you move forward.

Making arrangements for children, whether relating to with which parent they live, which school they attend, or whether one parent can take them to live abroad, is often challenging. We take the time to understand your family so that we can help you achieve the best outcome.

Whilst court proceedings are necessary for some cases, there are now many ways to resolve family law disputes including mediation, arbitration, collaborative law, solicitor negotiations and round table meetings. We work flexibly enabling you select the right process for your circumstances, providing constant support whichever route your matter takes.

We are praised in Chambers & Partners for our “depth of experience” and “personable and thorough” lawyers, and described in the Legal 500 directory as a “calm team that provides intelligent and cost-effective advice – in a word it is ‘classy’”.

Family Experts

We identify our clients’ needs and tailor our work to each set of circumstances, providing high quality, cost effective advice. We are a multi-disciplinary practice and work collaboratively to provide a comprehensive service across all of our practice areas.
