London lawyers with national strength

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.

Our London office “has really excelled in the last few years. It is a rising presence, regularly comes up against the big names, and matches, if not exceeds them”. Our team are recognised as “excellent lawyers who manage clients’ expectations brilliantly’ and which ‘offers a London service at non-London price”’. (Legal 500)

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…."

We regularly act for “City” based clients, members of the judiciary and leading individuals in the capital. Other top family law firms refer clients to us when they recommend a solicitor to act for another party whilst family law barristers regularly ask us to act for their family and friends.

"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." (Chambers High Net Worth). Our London lawyers work closely with our specialist legal teams across the country. We draw on the expertise of our pensions, property, corporate, employment and private tax lawyers, for example to ensure we offer comprehensive guidance for clients who need to maintain a balance of personal and business interests.

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 receives referrals from their international colleagues.
