Family Law & Divorce

The Coffin Mew family law team, based in Brighton, Gosport, LondonNewbury, Portsmouth, Southampton, and Wantage is consistently voted in the independent legal directories Chambers UK and Legal 500 as a top tier family team in the South.  We have a reputation for achieving solutions to family issues that are constructive, pragmatic and cost effective.

We pride ourselves on our client service and friendly approach coupled with specialist expertise which means that we can help solve your family issues – from financial arrangements arising from a divorce or separation, right through to advice on living and contact arrangements for your children.

If you have even more complex family issues then you are certainly in safe hands. We have wide ranging experience in public sector pensions, shareholdings and partnerships in family businesses, trusts and tax issues and assets held offshore.

We also offer a bespoke service for pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements for couples who are not married and advice on civil partnerships.

We are a mobile team and often work from client offices, consult by Skype and communicate by text and Whatapp. We adapt our service to fit our clients, who are as unique as we are. We strive to identify how our clients want to work with us from the beginning of each case. By asking the right questions and listening, together we build the team our clients want and need.

Always at the forefront of new national family initiatives, we have a team of collaborative lawyers who work with you to reach a practical settlement that avoids court proceedings – which can be better for all concerned.

We also advise on Inheritance Act Claims and Will Disputes and have helped many people to successfully make claims during what is a difficult time.

Our best recommendations are from our clients who time and time again refer their friends and family to us recognising that we offer an excellent service.

Coffin Mew LLP provides ‘straightforward advice and quick response times’.

Coffin Mew’s staff are friendly, efficient and always keep me up to date. I have felt in very safe hands.

They were very friendly, approachable and willing to explain what was complex to us in a simple way.

What our clients say

You were a huge support to me, although you were simply doing your job, it was your warmth, sensitivity and understanding that gave me the confidence to see it through.

I could not have made it through without your expertise, wisdom and supportive guidance.  It has been such a comfort to know that you were there on the end of the phone.
