Since 5 December 2006, same-sex couples have been able to register their relationships under the Civil Partnership Act. Registering a relationship provides the couple with a range of rights and responsibilities akin to marriage. The legal implications of civil partnership are far reaching. Our civil partnership page offers advice on a range of legal issues for those who are contemplating taking the step.
We are a Top 100 Firm of 55 partners.
Our size means we are able to offer a degree of specialist expertise not available in a smaller firm. When you instruct one of our partners or solicitors, you will be dealing with someone who specialises in that area of law and a leader in their field.
We do a limited amount of public funded work, concentrating on areas where more than money is at stake (for example, cases involving children).Top of Page
