Department profile submitted by Penningtons Manches LLP
Our family law department offers the highest quality of service to our clients, stemming from the experience and talent of outstanding family lawyers who are nationally and internationally acknowledged as leaders in their field.
We act in some of the leading cases in England and Wales representing clients including professionals, entrepreneurs, wealthy individuals, landowners, those in the public eye, or for their partners.
Our team is committed to providing clients with an unparalleled level of service in a compassionate, timely and cost effective manner from our offices in London, Oxford, Reading and Guildford. Our skills include constructive negotiation, a full range of family dispute resolution services and robust and rigorous litigation where required.
We work closely with the firm’s highly regarded private client team on complex onshore and offshore tax and trust issues, as well as lifetime and succession planning. We have significant experience in disputes between unmarried couples, the ground breaking issues surrounding surrogacy, “alternative families” and complex parenting arrangements.
Six members of our team are fellows of the prestigious International Academy of Family Lawyers. We are at the very forefront of those who advise on international family law issues including “forum shopping” or jurisdiction disputes as well as international marital agreements and cases involving cross-border disputes about children.
