About us

The family law department has teams in Putney, Kingston and Bedford Row. The department has a long established and strong reputation and wealth of experience across the family law sector. Five of the team are qualified family mediators and all are members of specialist family organisations. We are also represented on professional panels, including the Lord Chancellor's child abduction panel and children panel. We offer clients a tailor made service whether through court or alternative ways of resolving disputes.

We are amongst the country's leading Collaborative Family Practice Specialists.

We also offer mediation and arbitration to assist with the resolution of disputes in relation to both children and finance.

Civil Partnership
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, we can advise on the legal issues connected with same-sex relationships and on a range of legal issues for those who are contemplating taking the step.

A top 100 London-based law firm with around 200 highly regarded specialist solicitors and lawyers, 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, rather than being a 'jack of all trades'. Click here to find out more.

We do a limited amount of public funded work, concentrating on areas where more than money is at stake (for example, cases involving children).
