What is family law?

Family law relates to any legal issues concerning family disputes. It primarily covers three areas: matrimonial, finance, and children law. When you break these three areas down further, you'll find common types of legal disputes. These include matters such as divorce and separation, wealth protection, and child arrangements. But family law also covers elements such as inheritance law, surrogacy, and defamation.

Our team of family lawyers has a huge amount of experience and a proven track record of success for our clients. We work with a wide range of people, from business owners and industry-leading professionals to international families and high-profile individuals.

Regardless of your circumstances or the legal issues you face, our goal is always the same: to achieve the right result for you while maintaining integrity, sensitivity, and compassion.

Our experience in family law ranges from everyday disputes to ground-breaking cases where established legal principles have been challenged. Our success comes from understanding that no two family law cases are the same. We form personal relationships and get to know your case in detail to ensure we deliver the best possible result for you.

Separate well. Together.

While there's no good way to separate, there are better ways. Our primary commitment as a family law team is to reduce conflict wherever possible and make the process as smooth as it can be. One of the ways we do this is by providing you with legal solutions that are more constructive, less confrontational, and settlement-focused.

Our separation services are based on prioritising healthier family relationships and amicable resolutions above all else. If you wish to look at alternatives to family court to settle your dispute, please consider the following:
