We are the pre-eminent divorce and family practice in the UK, ranked No.1 in both The Legal 500 and Chambers. We act for high net worth individuals based in the UK and overseas.
Our partners are regarded as “the leading lights of the profession”, spearheading a department of unrivalled strength and depth advising on all aspects of family law.
We take time to understand the issues our clients face, and help them achieve the best possible outcome both in relation to their children and their finances.
Our lawyers have particular expertise in unravelling complicated trusts, identifying assets held within companies and advising on complex cross-border issues.
When required, we are supported by experts in our Tax Litigation and Trust and Probate Litigation teams, and select law firms in other jurisdictions.
Our team is at the forefront of taking a collaborative approach to divorce and family issues and, when appropriate, we use arbitration and mediation as an alternative to court proceedings. A number of our partners are accredited mediators and arbitrators.
