What we do
Our expert family law team provides trusted legal advice on all aspects of family law; from advice on starting a relationship, including cohabitation and marriage, to advice on ending a relationship.
We provide specialist advice for clients whose business interests may be affected by separation and our breadth of experience means we confidently deal with all complex financial matters including foreign assets, agricultural land, pensions and tax.
We are adept at dealing with matters concerning children, whether that be where the children live, how often they see each parent, whether the children need to relocate due to separation or other matters such as making decisions regarding the children’s educational needs.
How we do it
We understand that family and relationship issues are sensitive and going through separation can be stressful and emotionally charged. We strive to achieve the best way forward for our clients and their family and aim to minimise unnecessary conflict.
Our solicitors are members of Resolution, which is an organisation committed to constructive resolution of family disputes and putting the needs of the family first. We are firm but fair and where necessary will adopt a robust approach to deal with difficult issues or opposing points of view. We are trusted to provide expert advice and exceptional client support in the most difficult of circumstances.
Why choose us
We understand that the relationship with a solicitor is of the utmost importance, especially when dealing with family matters. When it comes to choosing the right firm for your needs, reputation is crucial.
That’s why we are proud to have been short listed as finalists in Family Team of the Year in the Dorset Legal Awards for the last two years and winners of Law Firm of the Year in the 2019 Dorset Legal Awards (up to 99 employees). The family law department is also recognised by the Legal 500 as one of the top family law departments in the south west, with Laura Martin, Head of Family Law, being individually named in the Legal 500.
We care about what we do and are passionate about achieving the best way forward for you and your family. We listen to our clients’ needs and act promptly to find solutions. Our clients trust us to provide exceptional guidance, support and discretion in the most challenging of circumstances.
