THE FIRM Cambridge Family Law Practice specialises exclusively in private family law matters. Partners Gail Marchant-Daisley, Adam Moghadas, Simon Bethel, Sue Varty, Tricia Ashton and Jeremy Ford provide exceptional depth and breadth of expertise and are all highly regarded in the region and nationally. CFLP has one of the largest family law teams in East Anglia and has established itself as a clear leader in the field.
Cambridge Family Law Practice is a different sort of family law firm. Its partner-only make-up means that every client gets the personal, expert service they deserve. There is no drop in service levels when a solicitor is away as clients will always be assisted by someone of the same level of experience and equally committed to the case. The partners work separately or together depending on the demands of the client and the individual case.
The firm has a vibrant client base in East Anglia and London, also drawing clients from throughout the UK, Europe and the US on recommendation and by reputation. The majority of Cambridge Family Law Practice’s clients are recommended to the firm because of its expertise, ability to resolve disputes in an efficient and cost-effective manner, and exacting standards of client care. Clients and referring professionals alike know that CFLPs partners act decisively, give clear and practical advice and pride themselves on the tailored service they are able to provide for each client.
PRINCIPAL AREAS OF WORK Cambridge Family Law Practice has particular expertise in cases involving substantial assets, often including high-value or overseas trusts, pensions and family businesses. The partners are highly experienced in dealing with private law children matters, prenuptial and cohabitation agreements, and CFLP is one of the most experienced firms in the country in the law where it applies to same-gender relationships. Newly appointed partner Jeremy Ford is renowned for his work in complex children matters, including assisted reproduction and surrogacy cases.
The firm is proud to offer a full choice of dispute resolution options for clients. All partners are adept at negotiation, court advocacy and in collaborative practice. The firm offers a private mediation service including the ability to directly consult with children in mediation, which is highly regarded by other specialist family lawyers. Simon Bethel is one of the first qualified Arbitrators in private children matters, complementing his role as Chair of Resolution’s Children Committee. Jeremy Ford (having been appointed as an Arbitrator at the same time) brings his background and experience from CAFCASS Legal and as a mediator to his role as a specialist Arbitrator in complex children disputes.
