Our aim is to exceed our clients’ expectations in terms of service, expertise and value. Our firm boasts a large legal team of male and female lawyers, consultants and arbitrators who have taken their years of practising at major national and international law firms and translated this into a niche Family and Children Law practice.

Based in London, Manchester and Cheshire, we are one of the very few firms in the country that specializes not only in divorce law and finance law but also Children Law. Our track record of success for our clients has helped us to become one of the country’s leading family law specialists.
