Our family team has considerable expertise in advising a wide range of clients on all aspects of family law. In particular, the team is able to draw on its wealth of experience and knowledge to advise on:

  • Divorce and separation including same- sex relationships and recognition and regulation of foreign marriages;
  • Cross-border and high-value financial disputes involving large family trusts, corporate interests and off-shore assets;
  • Complex pre and post-nuptial agreements including foreign agreements;
  • Disputes between cohabiting couples or family members;
  • Serious and complex children matters including child relocation and child abduction; and
  • Alternative families including international and domestic surrogacy and adoption cases. 

The team also benefits from working closely with colleagues who specialise in tax, trusts, succession planning (both nationally and cross-border), property issues and immigration as well as professionals across the family law field (both nationally and internationally).

All team members are members of Resolution and, where appropriate, engage in all forms of non-court dispute resolution. In fact, 11 members of the team work as mediators, 9 as collaborative lawyers and one of the partners also sits as a deputy district judge and as an arbitrator.

The team is well-respected with a long standing reputation and prides itself on being at the forefront of new and emerging law, with a number of members being recognised across the directories.
