Family Law

Our lawyers have handled complex separations and divorces, prenuptial agreements, child arrangements and international child abductions. We know how to look for hidden assets and to stand up to bullying tactics, in both the US and UK.

Recent examples

We have prepared prenuptial agreements for Americans marrying British people and vice versa, as well as for British couples and American couples. They can be a good vehicle for partners to understand their financial circumstances and prospects at marriage, and to protect assets in case of divorce. Fair agreements provide the greatest emotional security and are the likeliest to be upheld.

We have represented high net worth women and men in complex divorces in the US and UK, including those that involve transatlantic family relocations. Our goal is to to help couples work together amicably, particularly when it comes to finances. However, when that proves to be impossible, we work with expert forensic accountants who often find deeply hidden assets.  We then fight tirelessly to achieve a fair and equitable division of those assets. 

We have helped parents keep access to or regain custody of their children when their ex-partner takes them to another country, for both American and British parents.  Our team of solicitors and barristers are expert in compassionate, yet careful listening, frequently finding issues between the parties that help to resolve problems to the benefit of the parents as well as the children.  The goal is to help achieve a healthy and functional family dynamic, regardless of custody or access.
