Focussing on your situation and the most appropriate resolution is central to our work. As a practice, we work collaboratively to create an atmosphere and an approach which is supportive to our clients. This is important when you are facing challenging and stressful situations, and we believe you will notice this difference as soon as you visit our offices. We combine this approach with robust and firm negotiations on your behalf when needed. Our clients highly value our expertise, the support we offer and our commitment.
Our first step is to understand your individual and specific issues. We then work with you to develop the best possible plan. We will explain the various forms of dispute resolution available and help you to decide the most suitable way forward. We aim to minimise conflict whenever possible.
We believe that settlements which are reached in a civilised manner help you move on to the next stage in your life more easily. We recognise that family breakdown causes disruption and distress to the whole family. We are especially conscious of the effect divorce can have on children and work with tact and sensitivity, without losing sight of your best interests.
Often the route to a successful conclusion is through skilled and practical negotiation. On some occasions urgent or pre-emptive court action must be taken. In such circumstances, we act swiftly and decisively using the court process to secure the best possible outcome.
We work closely with other professionals to ensure you have a team of trusted advisers who act on your behalf when and if you need it. These include barristers, accountants and independent financial advisers with whom we have worked for many years. Your own professional advisers will find us helpful and constructive to work with. We are able to offer clients the support of an in-house counsellor when needed and many find this support invaluable. We can also refer couples to external counsellors.

The Legal 500 Directory recognises the firm for undertaking “Central London work more economically than most London firms and describes our lawyers as “experienced, excellent and having a no nonsense approach”.
