Family Law & Divorce Solicitors

Our experienced family law solicitors provide advice and support to a wide range of clients both in the UK and internationally.

We understand and appreciate the intimate and personal nature of family law matters and take great pride in providing a discreet, personal and friendly service to our clients.

We have particular expertise in resolving financial disputes involving high net worth individuals which often requires an understanding of complex multi-jurisdictional issues.

As many of our clients place considerable emphasis on privacy, we seek to resolve matters quickly and wherever possible avoid publicity whilst simultaneously managing and protecting our client’s reputation.

Call Us For Confidential Advice

Our team is led by Panay Vassiliou who has over twenty years’ experience in advising clients in relation to family law matters ranging from pre and post nuptial agreements, divorce, civil partnership dissolution, children law matters and a particular specialism in complex and high value financial settlements.

Our Clients | Who We Act For?

Since 1997 we have acted for a wide range of clients including:

  • UK Nationals and Non-UK Nationals
  • Clients with substantial links and assets in overseas jurisdictions including USA, Russia and CIS countries, India, Pakistan, UAE & the Middle East, Africa, South America, the Far East and many of the recognised offshore tax havens.

  • Professionally qualified individuals from the legal, accountancy, financial and medical sectors.

How Can We Help?

We take a proactive approach when advising our clients upon the initial stages of their case and spend time with them in order to fully understand their situation and requirements.  

We are happy to provide clients with:

  • a consultation providing initial advice and an overall assessment of the case in clear plain language [members of our staff also speak Greek, Punjabi, Hindi & Urdu]
  • advice as to the potential outcome of the case
  • an indication of likely overall costs to be incurred
  • advice on funding options, particularly for clients who do not have any independent financial means from their spouse (as the spouse may be liable to fund their case)
  • support throughout the legal process and continued protection of the client’s interests at all times
  • every effort to resolve matters without the need for court proceedings by utilising the skills of our expert negotiators
  • the best possible representation by the country’s leading QC’s and barristers if the matter does proceed to court.

Multi-Disciplinary Team

There are occasions when expert advice beyond the scope of family law is required in order to successfully resolve matters.

Accountancy

We have well established working relationships with forensic accountants and are able to work in conjunction with them in relation to financial settlement cases.

Criminal Law & Tax Law

Unfortunately, it is our experience that, in recent times, a party to family law proceedings is increasingly likely to submit criminal allegations against the other party to the police or tax authorities.

As an award-winning criminal law firm, our criminal law team and HMRC tax investigations team are able to advise clients in relation to such allegations and represent clients in the course of such criminal or tax investigations.

Asset Tracing

In cases involving financial settlement disputes we are experienced in engaging in worldwide asset tracing and asset recovery.

We have a specialist Asset Recovery and Asset Tracing Team which deals with many non-family law related cases and we bring this experience and expertise to our family law clients.

Barristers & QCs

If a matter cannot be resolved by negotiation or mediation and court proceedings become necessary, we are able to access the finest family law barristers and QCs for our clients as a result of our excellent working relationship spanning over two decades with many of the very best barristers’ chambers in the country.
