Family & Divorce
“They are always there when I need them. I trust them, I listen to and respect their opinion”
Legal 500 2021
Family law advises individuals on all stages of their relationship, whether it be at the outset of living together or in the lead up to nuptials, in the midst of a marriage; or on separation and divorce.
At any of these key milestones it is important to consider how to protect your wealth, plan for the future of the children, and consider the impact a divorce might have on your business.
