Specialists in family affairs

Once familiar matters that used to be discussed and resolved in the family circle may come under pressure through all sorts of events, as a result of which communications break down and those involved end up getting involuntarily involved in far-reaching legal proceedings. Partners growing apart with the consequential divorce petition, maintenance, asset allocation, pension equalisation, access to children, even child abduction, but also matters relating to an inheritance, a will, the distribution of an estate: they are all issues that could lead to a permanent rift and alienation.

From powerless to powerful

It is easy to find a lawyer. Getting stuck in. Litigation seems to be the solution. When this is how far things have come, we will seek justice on your behalf; based on the proven national and international expertise we deploy, for business owners, those practising an independent profession and wealthy private individuals.

However, are proceedings always the best solution for your case? As lawyers and mediators, we want to find out if that is the best way forward for your case beforehand. We aim for the best result. We help you turn your situation of powerlessness into one of strength.

Empathic and coaching if possible - with specialist legal knowledge when it comes down to it.
