These days, family law is relevant at almost every stage of life. It is about the beginning as well as the ending of relationships, about families and businesses, about individuals as well as couples.  Pragmatic, proactive and creative, our family team works closely with clients to help them to provide for and protect their families, their businesses, their assets and their futures.

Reliable expertise

Our family team specialises in all family issues, including relationship-planning, divorce and separation, financial settlements, children and same-sex relationships. We work closely with our other teams to support our clients in other areas, in particular residential property and private client advice as well as in more specific circumstances, sound commercial and agricultural advice.  This approach allows us to draw on expertise within the firm by way of a Partner-led team to ensure that the needs of our clients are met. We take the time to get to know you, understand your problems and the decisions that you face and, because family law is flexible, we are able to offer you plans and solutions that are tailored to your specific needs and budgetary considerations.   We will equip you to make the best and most informed choices for your future.


The team take time to look beyond the law and the process, and I feel that I am being handled not just as a client with a case number but as a person dealing with difficult and sometimes emotive issues.
