Our Process

  • From our initial meeting with you, we will put together the best legal team for your case, whether you need advice about divorce, separation, finances or children amongst other issues. This will help to ensure we always have the right team in place for you. We will work with you quickly to understand your desired goals and help you to achieve your desired outcome. You will find that your appointed solicitor will be contactable, friendly, and supportive throughout the process;
  • We know that separation and divorce can be costly. Wherever appropriate, we will always aim to keep you out of court by exploring suitable forms of alternative dispute resolution. This may include mediation, collaborative law, solicitor-led negotiations or arbitration. We know from experience that by resolving your family disputes outside the court arena this can help reduce animosity, minimise delay and reduce your exposure to costs.
  • If you have to go to court then there is no need to worry. You will be expertly guided by specialists in family law. We will ensure your appointed matrimonial solicitor is with you every step of the way and you can be assured that you will receive the right expertise to guide and support you throughout the process.
  • We are often asked to advise on complex cases involving owner-managed businesses, trusts, pensions and foreign assets. We use the knowledge and experience of our tax, trust, property, employment and company solicitors to keep costs down. One benefit of practising within a multi-disciplinary team is the skill-set that can be drawn from our lawyers across all these fields both locally within West Yorkshire and nationally where appropriate. Either way, we have the resource, experience and expertise in-house; under one roof wherever needed.
