Our Family Law Team provides assistance and representation in all aspects of family law related matters and is recommended in Chambers (2015) for handling the breadth of family law issues, including cohabitation, separation and children matters. Particular expertise is in high net worth financial provision and cases with complex farming and business aspects.
Andrew Mercer is described by Chambers (2015) as "extremely able, gracious and sensible and a very good negotiator." He is particularly recognised for his financial settlement work, and handles areas such as children work and prenuptial agreements.
Legal 500 (2015) also state that Trethowans LLP offers ‘a great standard of service’ to divorcing clients. They praise the extremely knowledgable Andrew Mercer for ‘providing really practical and sensible advice’.
Grant Cameron is also listed in both Chambers and Legal 500. Chambers (2015) describe him as "an astute family lawyer, who is prepared to think creatively," with experience handling cases with complex business and trust assets. Sources describe him as "everything you want in a family lawyer: he's fair, calm and focused on the client."
We can help and guide you with the legal aspects that are relevant at the different stages of your life, including:
We offer a FREE half hour meeting at either our Salisbury, Southampton or Poole offices with one of our family lawyers on all family law related matters. This is an opportunity for you to get an indication of your legal position and also to meet one of our family lawyers. On this last point, we understand the sensitivities of family related legal matters and thus the importance of having a family lawyer who you feel comfortable with; that’s why we offer the initial half hour meeting for free.
We also understand that you may need advice outside of ‘normal office hours’ when it is more convenient for you to speak; we offer an ‘out of hour’s service accordingly.
