Family law

Relationships end for many reasons. What really matters is where you go from here. Our specialist Family law team will work with you to bring things to a fair conclusion, whether you’ve been married, in a civil partnership, or living together.

We’ll cover everything from assets like homes and businesses, to provision for any children you may have had together, or from previous relationships.

We always favour collaborative law – bringing the two sides together to negotiate a settlement – over litigation. Through talking to your partner’s lawyers, we have a good chance of avoiding your case becoming contentious and in so doing, saving time, costs and heartache for all. All our family law advice is, of course, in complete confidence.
