Why our 25th birthday anniversary is going down a treat!

It’s celebration time as we mark 25 years as a niche family law practice which continues to go from strength to strength.

We have earned an enviable reputation working exclusively in divorce, separation, complex financial disputes, children issues and contested wills and estates.

Our highly respected firm was founded in Leeds by leading divorce lawyer, Peter Jones, as the first specialist practice of its kind in the city.

A former Deputy District Judge who was National Chair of Resolution and continues as chair of Resolution’s specialist Accreditation Committee, Peter has extensive experience at the highest level in all aspects of divorce and financial disputes.

Fast forward a quarter of a decade and our sustained success is reinforced by a series of milestones which include opening a London office in 2012. We also launched our third office in Harrogate this year to accommodate an increase in instructions from our clients in North Yorkshire.

Our breadth and depth of expertise is also further reflected in our consistent joint Top Tier rankings by the highly regarded Legal 500 and Chambers guides. Our team of experts, which also include an experienced mediator, a family law arbitrator and our own in-house barrister, jointly combine over 250 years of legal experience.

With over 40% of marriages ending in divorce and a high percentage of cohabitation relationships breaking down we deliver a bespoke service tailored to the circumstances of our clients who are based regionally, nationally and internationally.

Consistently striving for the right solution for every client, we support, guide and advise them through options including options which avoid going to court.

Likewise, when clients require strong and tenacious support to pursue litigation, we adeptly advise, support and guide them through this process.

Our expertise also extends to anticipating difficulties by advising and arranging pre marriage and cohabitation agreements.

We know only too well the impact that relationship and family issues can have on people’s lives – which is why our understanding, expertise and reputation underpins everything we do.
