Family lawyer

There are many different ways to resolve financial issues and decide your children’s future. 

Our team of specialist family lawyers are experienced in dealing with complex cases. So whether you need to resolve issues relating to ownership of the matrimonial home, businesses or complex assets or trusts, we are able to help.

 

If you want to avoid court, our family law solicitors help you find other ways to reach a negotiated settlement such as through mediation or arbitration.

 

If court is unavoidable we will represent you effectively so as to achieve the right outcome for you, whether relating to financial claims, children’s arrangements or domestic violence.

 

It is often prudent to make arrangements at the start of your relationship. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are used by many to protect their interests. English courts have confirmed the importance of nuptial agreements and will usually follow them unless the terms are unfair or don’t meet the needs of one party or children of the family.

 

We recommend that couples living together sign a cohabitation agreement, as they do not have the same legal protection as married couples or those in civil partnerships.

 

Many of our clients who come to us for family law advice have inherited wealth, are business or landowners or have senior jobs in central London; this breadth of experience has made us adept at helping people with complex financial affairs.

 

We also have numerous international clients. Our extensive experience of cross-border tax and succession planning means we can tap into our network of family lawyers across the world if needed.

 

Our family law team appreciates that separations can be distressing. We treat you with sensitivity and explain your options and their consequences clearly and carefully. We can also meet you outside normal business hours and away from our offices.

 

All our family lawyers belong to Resolution, an organisation committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes.

 

We offer a free telephone consultation so that you can talk to one of our expert family lawyers about your divorce or separation before you decide whether to appoint us.
