There is no point in building up assets during a marriage to protect the family, only to waste them because your relationship has broken down. If you are considering finances on divorce or separation, it is inevitable that you will have to make a decision over who gets what financially. Our expert and diverse group of divorce and family law solicitors are well practised in helping you find solutions that protect your wealth.

What our clients say

'I was greatly relieved by the efficient and informed level of advice I received. Salient information was conveyed quickly and clearly. I was given an overview of my case and the strengths and weaknesses of my legal position, which was justified with relevant experience and information. When I raised issues, these were responded to without undue delay. On any occasion where my solicitor was not available, I felt her personal assistant was genuinely well informed of the details of my case and capable of dealing with or referring ongoing matters as required.'

What our clients say

"I wish I had known about Stone King during my divorce. Mediation during my divorce was useless. Stone King made me feel for the first time I was being treated fairly. It was impossible to have any mediation with my ex husband until Stone King. They are brilliant and look at both sides in an objective way. It's a unique way of doing mediation that actually works."
