Family Services

Our lawyers are all experts in their chosen specialisms, but you need your advisers to be able to look beyond the specific deal or project to understand your business sector. That is why our lawyers immerse themselves in specific industry sectors, making sure that they understand your business as well as they do their own.

How we can help you

We have particular expertise in complex financial cases particularly those involving businesses, offshore assets, tax and jurisdictional issues.

Our specialist family and collaboratively trained lawyers work as a team and in conjunction with other professionals to offer blended fee rates and the highest levels of service. We offer bespoke solutions enabling you to choose the option best for you whether that be litigation, mediation or the collaborative approach. Above all we offer discreet, pragmatic and cost efficient advice. 

All our lawyers are members of Resolution, a national organisation of family lawyers and other professionals committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes. Whilst we will strive on your behalf to get the best result for you by agreement we are also experienced litigators and will represent your interests in Court robustly when necessary.


We also provide Farming and Tax and Wealth Management services.

Clearly divorce is a difficult subject to deal with and it’s a time of great emotion for those involved. Justine handled the entire process from start to end, with the utmost level of compassionand professionalism. I hope I don’t require your services again for a matter of this nature, but should I need to, I would have absolutely no hesitation in using Justine Flack."
