Overview

Hunters has one of London's leading family law teams, acting for largely HNW clients on the full range of issues arising on relationship inception and breakdown. We offer a strong depth of knowledge across a talented team which combines long-established figures with strong junior talent.

We are best known for our expertise in complex high value financial cases on divorce, often involving family businesses, trusts and complex asset structures. Much of our work has an international element, and we have excellent links with specialists across multiple jurisdictions.

The team are experienced in preparing and advising on nuptial agreements, often working in co-ordination with our Private Client team to advise on long-term wealth protection strategies.

We are regularly instructed in challenging private law children work, and advise on the rights of cohabiting couples, cohabitation agreements, and financial provision for children.   

All of our solicitors are comfortable with a range of processes and work flexibly to support clients in selecting the right path for their case, whether that be arbitration, litigation, solicitors' negotiations, round-table meetings, collaborative law or mediation.

We work collaboratively with other professionals to support our clients, both with our colleagues in Hunters’ private client, commercial and property departments, and externally with accountants, independent financial advisers, therapeutic professionals and other advisors as needed.
