Make an enquiry Support from leading family and divorce lawyers

Our London-based team of Family solicitors invest time in gaining a full understanding of the intricacies of your situation and can then guide you skillfully and sensitively through complex national and international financial claims and matters involving children. With our complete knowledge of the different elements of the UK divorce process, we can provide you with tailored, pragmatic solutions in a clear and understandable way.

Our four partners have substantial experience in family law and our team is completely committed to protecting your interests and achieving the best possible outcome for you and your family.

Deciding to end a marriage can be painful, but the process itself does not have to be. The new no-fault divorce rules remove one element of the inevitable pain and conflict that the divorce process creates and this helps to keep things as amicable as possible. Our lawyers work hard to secure the best possible outcome in your divorce case, ensuring your family’s needs are protected both now and in the future.

For appropriate cases we have a strong mediation practice which helps separating and divorcing parents decide on the full range of issues and practical matters with the assistance of one of our lawyers acting as an impartial mediator. We have an excellent track record of bringing about successful mediations through the adoption of a calm and logical approach.

Make an enquiry Cohabitation Agreements

In the event of a relationship breakdown, couples who are cohabiting do not have the same financial protection as couples who are married or in civil partnerships. We can advise you whether you are moving in with a partner, concerned about how your finances may be affected by separation, or if your relationship has already ended.

A major worry for separating couples is not knowing at the outset what the financial outcome of their divorce will be. Premarital agreements or ‘prenups’ add certainty to your financial settlements and are a sensible way of dealing with problems before they arise.
