Pursuing positive outcomes

  • Providing advice that meets your needs, responding to your circumstances
  • Resolving conflict through collaboration and empathy
  • Settling disputes when it makes sense, fighting your corner when it does not

Relationship breakdowns are all too common.  Our family law team recognises the anxiety and distress that often ensues.  Approachable, empathetic and easily contactable, our lawyers also have a commercial and realistic approach in offering strategic advice, guidance and support. 

Working collectively, our team is always available to help, providing clients with bespoke advice that is tailored to their specific needs.  We act on domestic and international cases for a diverse range of clients: high-net-worth and high-profile individuals, foreign nationals, non-domiciles, British nationals living abroad, and multinational families.

Our team aims to deliver the best outcome via negotiation, mediation and arbitration.  Where necessary, we can also represent you through court proceedings.  We handle complex cases involving substantial assets held in offshore companies and trusts, and the forensic analysis of documents.

Collaboration is key.  We work with a diverse network of professionals including divorce coaches, specialist therapists and forensic accountants to achieve optimum results.  Our firm also provides advice on other connected matters: sale of property, wills and probate issues, inheritance planning, dispute resolution and business restructuring.

We offer services in several languages, including German, Urdu, Gujarati, Tamil and Hindi.

  • Child Arrangement Orders (including cross-border disputes)
  • Cohabitation Agreements
  • Dissolution of Civil Partnerships
  • Enforcement of Court Orders
