Family dynamics are richly diverse, but complex too.
With the way in which families are structured – with second and third families becoming more commonplace, and the potential for assets and residences to fall across multiple countries more likely – untangling a dispute and reaching resolution can be fraught with complications.
Relationship breakdowns are not only emotionally draining but can be financially demanding if not handled with appropriate care.
Our family team is carefully structured to ensure that you get the right level of legal, commercial and specialist support for the wide variety of issues that face modern families. With our adaptable, astute and creative approach – we ensure your interests are protected in troubled times.
We know that no two families are the same and we take the time to understand the intricacies and sensitivities of the situations that you face. We tactfully attune our advice to your needs, delivering proactive solutions that are personal, yet commercial.
We know that family issues are often intertwined with other business and financial concerns. By looking beyond the immediate, we ensure that your personal and professional interests are protected both now, and long into the future.
No matter whether in the UK or overseas, we defend, protect and represent individuals with their personal and professional needs by offering family law advice that is grounded in commercial intelligence. From relationships, financial agreements, children disputes, issues of fertility and surrogacy, to cohabiting couples, collaborative law and mediation – we can help you, whatever the situation.
