Legal 500 2013 Edition: Private Client (Family / Child Care)
We understand the sensitive nature of Family proceedings, especially when children are concerned, and we make a concerted effort to provide solutions that reduce the strain on all those involved.
Our Family department provides confidential advice with effective representation and includes Advanced members of the Law Society’s Family Panel, and members of the Law Society Children Panel. This means they are specialists in Family and Child Care Law and deal with all family and childcare related matters. We have also acquired a number of kite-marks which are testament to the quality of the specialised work our staff undertake.
The Family department comprises a professional, efficient team with a wealth of experience in dealing with all aspects of Family Law. Our overriding priority is to listen to all of the issues in your case and explore the best way of resolving your problems. This could be through negotiation or conciliation, or by application to the courts.
Whether it is divorce, dissolution of civil partnership, financial provision, matters concerning children, Non Molestation Injunctions, or any other Family Law related matter, we offer detailed, considerate and effective advice. We are experts at sorting out family disputes and, wherever possible, encourage out of court resolutions rather than litigation. We are, however, fully equipped to advise on bringing court proceedings if they offer the most sensible method of achieving the desired outcome of your case.
Legal aid is available to deal with many aspects of Family and Children work. If legal aid is not available, we offer high quality advice & representation on a privately funded basis at competitive rates including a reduced fixed fee for Divorce.
For our clients based in the City, our highly experienced Legal 500 Child Care Private Client team exclusively work from our City of London office.
