The team in Reading is led by Managing Partner, Claire McParland, a highly experienced and well-regarded family lawyer.
We are highly experienced in the complexities faced by families and individuals dealing with a family law issue. We frequently work on cases to resolve complex financial matters with multiple assets and protect the welfare of any children involved.
Our clients range from high-net-worth families with substantial assets, income and investments through to professional families and stay at home parents in the Reading area.
Side by side
We listen to your unique circumstances and help you to find a workable solution for your family’s well being. Our holistic approach supports achieving out-of-court settlements, but we appreciate that at times, litigation is appropriate, and we adopt a strong and robust strategy.
We tailor our approach and legal advice to the unique needs of each client. We guide you through the practical, emotional and legal aspects of divorce (and other types of separation), from the very start of the divorce process and over the finish line.
While our divorce solicitors have a reputation for being expert litigators, court proceedings can add unnecessary time, expense and stress to a divorce or separation. We offer out of court (alternative dispute resolution) routes: mediation, arbitration and collaborative law, which allow each spouse to find solutions and reach agreements on finances, any children involved and other family issues. In addition to supporting our clients through the legal side of divorce, we always apply an empathetic approach and encourage reaching out to our network of family support professionals if needed. This includes including coaches, therapists and parenting groups.
Your family’s finances
Our in-house accounting team will provide a clear picture of the assets in your marriage to create the optimum financial settlement. They have a breadth of specialist experience in tax, property, valuations, accounts and pension knowledge.
