Our team of award-winning family and divorce lawyers in Harrogate is led by Managing Partner Christopher Birch. Christopher is joined by Partners Neil Dring and Kate Sarsfield and a team of five Senior Solicitors and an in-house accountancy team.
We are family law specialists. Since the firm’s founding in 1982, we have provided family law services only. Most of our family solicitors been giving family legal advice for their entire careers.
On your side, in and out of court
We will listen, advise and guide you through the legal and practical process of divorce and other family matters. Ideally, we will work to settle out of court but are equally experienced in litigation and have a strong, robust approach and an excellent track record.
All of our Harrogate family lawyers are members of Resolution, which means that we are aligned in our commitment “to the constructive resolution of family disputes” and follow a Code of Practice that “promotes a non-confrontational approach to family problems.”
Alternatives to court are centred around dialogue between spouses and their solicitor or solicitors. Methods include mediation and arbitration, which can be explained to you at the initial consultation.
Helping you before, during and after separation
We are highly experienced in advising and acting in all areas of family law with a particular focus on resolving complex financial matters and protecting the welfare of children during a divorce or separation. Our clients range from high-net worth individuals with complex financials to local professionals with more straightforward matters.
Whether you wish to protect your wealth or want to ensure your financial future is secured, our Harrogate team of family solicitors work hand-in-hand with our in-house accountancy team to get the best representation and outcome.
You’re in good hands
