About our family law team

We are members of Resolution and believe in a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law matters. We have an excellent experienced team covering Hampshire, Wiltshire and Dorset who are here to help you.

Head of Team and collaborative lawyer Andrew Mercer specialises in supporting wealthy individuals. “He is clever and affable as well as pragmatic,” says one source, while another says: “He provides absolute support for his clients right through a case.” (Chambers 2016). He is recognised in the Legal 500 who quote that he ‘provides really practical and sensible advice’. and is ‘excellent with clients’. Andrew is superbly assisted by Dawn Gore whose knowledge of children law is ‘second to none’ (Legal 500 2016).

Emma Wilders-Pratt, Partner and collaborative lawyer, who has particular expertise in representing military personnel, according to the Legal 500, ‘combines the perfect balance of strength and determination to get the very best result whilst being able to sensitively advise her clients on how to reach agreement’.

Grant Cameron has a broad practice with a focus on family businesses and high net worth individuals. He is regarded as “a pleasure to work with – a solicitor with a pleasant and easy manner.” (Chambers 2016).

Amy Trench is Membership Development Officer on the Regional Resolution Committee and promotes the use of alternative dispute resolution as part of her practice.

In addition to being an excellent family solicitor and mediator Kimberley Davies has expertise on advising people about the legal issues they should consider when embarking on assisted reproduction, including donor agreements, co-parenting agreements and surrogacy (both in the UK and abroad). Kimberley also has experience in private law adoptions, both domestic and international.

“The team gives you confidence to be able to fight your cause.”

“The lawyers are organised and clear about everything. They are on top of things.”

Our ethos is to use our expertise to provide you with realistic, practical and decisive advice in an approachable and sensitive manner.
