The firm offers expertise of the highest quality across all areas of family law. The firm’s lawyers regularly advise on cases involving financial complexity including those with an international dimension, hidden assets, family companies and complex trust structures. The firm is highly regarded for its experience in advising parents on issues concerning their children, particularly removal from the jurisdiction. The firm’s lawyers have considerable expertise in advising on pre- and post-nuptial agreements, for both national and international clients. The firm’s expertise in acting for cohabitants and same-sex couples on issues such as financial claims, children matters and relationship agreements is second to none.

The firm includes market leading mediators, collaborative lawyers and arbitrators and offers clients a range of process options including robust litigation, solicitor led negotiation, collaborative law, mediation and arbitration. Lawyers work carefully with their clients to select the process best suited to the clients’ needs. In particular, the firm’s expertise in out of court settlement options can provide clients, including those in the public eye, with privacy and discretion in dealing with the sensitive issues they face.

The firm has close relationships with a network of trusted advisers both at home and abroad to ensure it offers first class advice on all issues. The experience gained and contacts fostered as a result of the firm’s long standing membership of a wide range of national and international family law associations are used for the benefit of each and every client.

The firm’s comprehensive family practice offers clients a unique blend of specialist family law advice complemented by a range of family support services, including counselling and parenting classes.
