London lawyers with national strength

Our divorce lawyers in London are some of the most respected family lawyers nationally. As well as experienced litigators, we include lawyers trained in collaborative law, mediation and arbitration.

Our London lawyers work closely with our specialist legal teams in other parts of the country. They may draw on the expertise of our pensions, property, corporate, employment and private tax lawyers, for example. This meticulous approach ensures we offer comprehensive guidance for clients who need to maintain a balance of personal and business interests.

Mills & Reeve's London divorce solicitors are top-rated and well-respected within the London community. We regularly act for members of the judiciary and leading individuals in the capital. London family law firms refer clients to us when they recommend a solicitor to act for another party to a matter whilst family law barristers ask us to act for their family and friends. Our expertise is recognised by our appointment by Linklaters, who utilise our London lawyers to deal with any problems regarding family law and private client work for their partners.

As well as clients in London and the surrounding areas, the London team handles a high volume of cases with an international element and can access specialist advice all over the globe. Our divorce lawyers in London include Fellows of the International Academy of Family Lawyers and regularly receive referrals from their international colleagues.

Our peers and contacts recognise us as leading divorce solicitors in London and beyond. 

Chambers High Net Worth commented that "I think that they have the ability to take on the big cases; they've got the resources." This source continues: "I get the sense that they are very able to deal with the complex cases, because of the depth of expertise and the strength of the team behind them. They have real strength in depth. The partners are excellent, but they have a really strong back-up team as well…."

The firm's private client team is strong nationally and its family law client base is largely comprised of HNWIs. "There is real shared knowledge between the offices," says another source. "They are a very tightly knit network that is collectively more than the sum of its individual parts, however strong those are."

Legal 500 says that our London team “fields a team of ‘excellent lawyers who manage clients’ expectations brilliantly’ and which ‘offers a London service at non-London prices’.

Notable practitioners 

Joanna Grandfield, who leads the London office, is named on the CityWealth Leaders List and is recognised in Chambers High Net Worth as "carving a real niche in London in that office. She is making a big impression with the judges in London," according to a QC, who also calls her "really bright and talented. She is very competent, and she's not at all fazed by the numbers. She is very resourceful in terms of bringing together disciplines to manage cases at that level; she can bring together all of that." Legal 500 notes that she is ‘clearly at ease with handling complex matters, while always putting the client at the forefront of every case’. 

Roger Bamber was named as a "leading lawyer" in the City Wealth Leaders List and is described by Legal 500 as being “highly polished”. We also advised and wrote the Money Advice Service's (formerly part of the Financial Services Authority) website.

Nick Stone was recognised in Legal 500 as "someone you want in your corner, not opposite you". David Salter recommended for pensions-related matters. Caitlin Jenkins is ‘superb on detail and can always see the bigger picture”. For mediation Alison Bull was described as having a "great grasp of finance, taxation and liquidity issues, as well as being personable and approachable, with an ability to keep mediations on track".

Not only is the strength and depth of our expertise second to none, our charging rates for our London divorce lawyers are very competitive – being roughly two-thirds of those in other top-level London family law practices. Clients often comment on the cost saving they have made by instructing a firm with a national base which also offers the service that we do in London.

By instructing one of our divorce and family lawyers in London, you get the best of all worlds: a divorce lawyer in London who specialises in family law and is known nationally, as well as someone who is part of one of the largest private client teams across the country, with direct access to expert legal advice on other areas of law which might be relevant to your case. This inevitably saves additional cost and cuts down on delays for you.
