Dealing with the legal fallout of relationship breakdown can be stressful and time consuming. Our dedicated team of Family Law specialists are here to take the burden off your shoulders at a difficult time.

For high-net-worth individuals with significant wealth or assets, the divorce process can be especially complex. Our specialist Family Lawyers have a wealth of knowledge and experience of all aspects of relationship breakdown, from high-value cases through to disputes over childcare arrangements. We understand that your relationship breakdown will feel extremely painful and personal to you, meaning that you need a solicitor you can really trust.

That’s why we make a promise to every single one of our Family Law clients, known as our Service Pledge. We promise to always be transparent, responsive, courteous and proactive in progressing your matter as quickly as possible, in order to minimise delays and the subsequent impact that these can have on your emotional wellbeing. Our solicitors are honest, approachable and work to build up a relationship of trust with you so that you feel as comfortable as possible with the process.

We also appreciate how precious your time is. By entrusting our experienced team with your online court application for a divorce, you can feel safe in the knowledge that everything will be taken care of, leaving you free to spend your time doing the things you enjoy.

As the Private Wealth Law Firm, we excel in guiding high-net-worth couples through the complexities of the separation process. By offering clear and compassionate advice, we help ensure the division of wealth and assets is as amicable and seamless as possible. There may be family trusts or businesses involved, as well as offshore or international assets, significant pension funds, property portfolios or other high-value assets to consider, making separation a complex affair for these couples. We can assist in carefully identifying and valuing your assets, often with the help of external experts, to help bring clarity and certainty to the division of wealth.

However, this process can be made even simpler if a pre-nuptial agreement is put in place before a couple gets married. Although no couple wants to think about the eventuality of separation at the beginning of their lives together, it is also true that nobody knows what the future holds and, for couples holding significant wealth, it can be a useful insurance policy should you sadly decide to separate later down the line. We can help with this.

Support and guidance from start to finish

We know it’s important to be open and honest with you from the very start, so that you know you can trust us. That’s why we’ll never baffle you with complex legal terms, and we’ll make sure you understand how our charges are worked out to ensure you’re not surprised by any hidden costs down the line. Throughout the process, we’ll be on hand to answer any questions (and we mean any) you may have – there’s no such thing as a silly question! For us, our drive comes from seeing you emerge from the process stronger, happier and clear about your future, knowing that we helped you to get there.
