Our approach to personal legal services is dictated by your own individual circumstances.

How We Can Help You In Life

We offer expertise in all aspects of personal law, enabling us to advise and represent individuals in a wide range of circumstances. Our personal legal services encompass:

Divorce & Separation

If your marriage has broken down and you are looking to separate, you want the best outcome for yourself and your family. Our separation and divorce lawyers are right here to advise and guide you through the process.

Children

Parenting through a separation is never easy. Our team of experts are on hand to guide you through the process of making child arrangement orders, always ensuring the long-term interests of your children remain at the heart of every child custody decision.

Financial Settlement Solicitors

Our Financial Settlement experts can guide you through the division of assets and help you to achieve a successful settlement that works for you and everyone involved.

Mediation, Arbitration & Collaborative Law

When a relationship ends, it doesn’t mean financial issues or child arrangements have to be settled in court. Our mediation lawyers can help you reach a solution that works for you and your ex-partner, offering you more control and flexibility over the decisions being made

International Divorce Lawyers

Regardless of your citizenship, if one of the parties to the divorce is resident in the UK, then it can be advantageous and far more simple to file for divorce under UK law. If your divorce involves residency in other countries, this can be a complex area of law and so it is important you choose lawyers with proven multi-jurisdictional experience to help ensure the best outcome for you, your family and your future.

Pre & Post Nuptial Agreements

When you’re about to tie the knot, or happily living with your spouse, it’s difficult to imagine what would happen if you separate. We can give you piece of mind by preparing a robust pre/post nuptial agreement to protect your assets.

Wills & Succession

It can be difficult to envisage a time when you’re not there to provide for your family. However, we are here to guide and support you with preparing a will so your wealth is protected for your loved ones into the future.

Trusts

Establishing a trust is often a sensible way to protect your wealth and maintain its value for the benefit of your loved ones over a long period of time. Our team of specialists will help you decide how to invest your money and benefit your family.

Powers of Attorney

No matter what age you are, making considerations about how your financial affairs and medical needs will be met if you lose capacity in the future is important. We can help you put a plan in place that works for you and gives you peace of mind.

Estate Administration

From obtaining the Grant of Representation to calculating the correct inheritance tax liability and distributing the estate to the correct beneficiaries, we will support and guide you through the complex process of administering an estate when a loved one has died.

Inheritance & Trusts Disputes

If you feel that a family member’s wishes have not been fulfilled, or you haven’t received what is rightfully yours, our specialist team can help you resolve your dispute, whether that is through mediation or negotiation, or court proceedings.

Charities

Leaving money to charity in your will can ensure your chosen charity beneficiaries reap the rewards of your hard work, while you benefit from the financial incentives too. We can advise you on the best way to structure and approach your charitable affairs.

Personal Tax Planning

From drafting your will to advising you how to structure your finances in the most tax efficient way, we aim to be your personal tax partner for life, ensuring we can design a plan that is exactly right for you and your family to protect your personal wealth.

It can be difficult when someone you know loses the ability to make considered decisions for themselves. We can help you take positive steps to safeguard and manage a person’s affairs in the event they do not have powers of attorney in place.

Children

Parenting through a separation is never easy. Our team of experts are on hand to guide you through the process of making child arrangement orders, always ensuring the long-term interests of your children remain at the heart of every child custody decision.

We can guide you through the process of ensuring children are front and centre of any child maintenance conversations, ensuring the outcome is right for you, your family and your future. We can also help if payments have halted.
