We are a leading Surrey law firm advising on all areas of family law, including divorce, separation, children's issues, finances, domestic violence, child abduction, pre-marriage contracts and co-habitation agreements for matrimonial and civil partnerships.
Our approach is professional but sympathetic and our Mediation and Collaborative Law services enhance our general Family Law practice.
We adhere to the Resolution Code of practice and attempt where possible to resolve issues by negotiation without escalating conflict, recognising the emotion and stress clients undergo when dealing with relationship breakdown.
We also offer a full range of conveyancing services: buying and selling leasehold and freehold properties and commercial properties, remortgages, transfers of equity and trust deeds.
In addition we have specialists who can advise on Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Probate and deal with Employment law matters as well as commercial and business legal matters including corporate finance and commercial property.
