Our specialist family solicitors in London have a wealth of knowledge in all areas of family law.
A marriage or relationship breakdown can be the most traumatic and stressful time, especially if there are children involved. At the time, when you often feel most vulnerable, you need to feel comfortable that you have the best legal team in your corner. Our clients value the sensitivity of our approach and the discretion shown.
The legal system is complex and family matters are rarely straightforward. Our dedicated team of family law solicitors are here to guide you through this complex area of the law. We understand that each child is unique and special and our aim is to ensure that children are put first in any dispute. We also regularly assist same sex couples seeking advice in relation to both financial and children’s matters.
We are often called upon to advise on Pre and Postnuptial agreements. Our team of family lawyers are able to assist with either drafting the agreement or equally able to advise clients on the implications of entering into an agreement.
We frequently see a common misconception about the legal standing of what is often referred to as the 'common law' spouse whereby one party to the relationship mistakenly believes they have the same legal protection as someone who is married. Until the law is reformed this is not the case. Our team of family solicitors are able to assist our clients to understand their legal rights in this highly complex area of the law.
We are able to work closely with the other departments and the international desks within the firm to provide clients with a seamless service across different areas of law. We are also a member of the International Business Law Consortium which allows us to obtain expert legal advice quickly from a wide range of overseas jurisdictions.

We understand that choosing your legal representative is an important decision and we encourage any person who may be contemplating separating or having relationship difficulties to get in touch with our team of family lawyers in London today.
