Family & Matrimonial

Our team provides sensitive, pragmatic and commercial advice on all family law related issues in connection with your divorce, your financial circumstances and matters involving children.


Every case is different. Our client’s needs are often different. We tailor our advice to the individual client. We are as comfortable advising on complex and highly litigious family law proceedings concerning high value assets including companies, trusts and pension assets, as we are providing advice and representation in delicate and highly emotive cases concerning children.

Our clients are busy professionals seeking excellent service and prompt and effective advice and guidance to assist them in resolving their family law dispute.

Our team comprises all qualified lawyers all with different levels of experience from the most qualified with over 30 years of experience, to the newly qualified; and so we can offer our clients the expertise required for the costs they can afford.

As part of a full service firm, our team members are able to draw on the expertise of other teams to provide our clients with a wraparound service, should they require a Will, employment advice, the sale of a property or advice in relation to their company, pension or tax issues.
