Family law is an emotional and complex area and requires a very specific skill set. We provide a bespoke, pragmatic and cost-efficient approach to assisting in family breakdowns and disputes.


Alfred Ip

We recognise that family breakdown affects more than just the immediate parties.

We strongly believe that family disputes are best resolved through an amicable attitude and mediation, both in respect of financial matters and children. At the same time, we are not shy in taking strong actions when a specific situation and urgency demand it, in particular when children are involved or in cases related to domestic violence.

We work closely with other professionals in the field of family disputes, including psychologists, accountants, but especially co-parenting coordinators and family mediators, to provide the best solutions for our clients.
