Expertise and experience in Family Law, hand in hand.
The label Family Law covers a wide spectrum of issues. These range from those that arise before, during or after a marriage or civil partnership to complex matters relating to the international movement of children, and everything in between. The one thing they have in common is that all require expert and careful management to resolve if they cannot be agreed.
Divorce, relationship breakdown and issues arising in relation to children will always be personally difficult, stressful and demanding. In order to deal with the legal issues arising, it is important you find specialist lawyers whom you like and trust. Your legal adviser should share your approach to the resolution of those issues and offer expert, practical and objective advice.
At Bishop & Sewell LLP, we have our clients’ best interests at heart. We help them deal with whatever issues arise constructively, expertly and with sympathy. We pride ourselves on a level of personal service which will enable you to feel confident in the advice that you receive and at ease with your lawyer. A good working relationship from an early stage can help us to ensure that the law works for you wherever possible.
We have extensive experience in dealing with clients who are either resident, or have assets, outside England and Wales, and have an unrivalled command of the law relating to competing jurisdictions.
When emergencies arise, we can act swiftly and decisively to protect your interests. As members of Resolution, a nationwide organisation of family lawyers, all our family lawyers are committed to its Code of Practice and a constructive and non-confrontational approach to dealing with family issues. Wherever possible, we seek to resolve issues outside of the Court process. If necessary, however, we will conduct Court proceedings vigorously in your interests and with a robust and sensible approach borne of our extensive experience in this field.
Our family team can help you in respect of all aspects of family law, including:
