Led by Judith Fordham, who is described as “a formidable advocate, who is certainly someone you would like on your side” (Chambers and Partners 2018), the family team is highly experienced in all matters of family law, particularly in financial relief and matrimonial finance.

Our members regularly handle high value and complex financial matters following divorce concerning pensions, trusts, businesses and overseas assets.  We have extensive experience of dealing with high value cases with substantial assets that often involve the consideration of business accounts, inherited wealth, hidden assets, liquidity issues and shareholdings.

In divorce and judicial separation cases, our members provide specialist advice on potential settlement terms and identify any preparatory work necessary for contested hearings.

We also cover proceedings under the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973, Schedule 1 Children Act 1989, civil partnerships, cohabitation claims, and Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 claims. We routinely use experts in forensic accountancy and tax.
