Family

When a relationship breaks down, it’s stressful for everyone concerned. And at times like these, we assist our clients by providing clarity and minimising conflict.

Modern life is complex and family life often complicated: careers are international, with home and working life often played out in multiple countries and across multiple jurisdictions. We understand the pressures this can cause. And our solid, thoughtful legal advice provides the guidance and practical solutions our clients need to feel confident about their options and next steps.

We also appreciate that career, financial and business concerns often merge with the personal. That’s why our team’s advice focusses on protecting all of our clients’ interests. This includes all commercial, personal and reputational matters, as well as protecting any inherited wealth and safeguarding both your rights and those of your children. In cases concerning suspected hidden assets, we also work closely with top-level forensic professionals to investigate all available assets including any located offshore or within complex company/trust structures.

Our Family Group is motivated by the desire to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients and their families, and doing so in the most cost-effective, discreet and expeditious way possible.

The Family Group’s experience of representing clients in the public eye, and people from across the worlds of media and entertainment, also means we are adept at handling unwarranted public or press attention and managing privacy issues.

  • Divorce or civil partnership dissolution
  • Separation
  • Cohabitation
  • Financial issues on divorce or separation
  • Child-related matters
  • Enforcement
  • Pre-nuptial and Post-nuptial agreements
