     Divorce Law specialists in central London  England  UK. 

As one of the best known divorce and family law firms in London we advise on a wide range of family issues including international divorces involving English nationals ("expats") resident abroad or where their partner lives in England. Phone or email us now for more details.

Typically we deal with cases where the assets are  of medium or relatively high value or where the issues involved are potentially complex (for example where there are business or trust assets, or cross-border maintenance claims).

We offer a reduced fee for an initial one hour face to face consultation. Telephone consultations can be arranged where it is not possible or convenient for you to come to our office for a meeting, for example if you live abroad. Our hourly rates are comparably lower than those in most other central London firms making it potentially a more economic option over the long term if you want your case handled  throughout by a solicitor with genuine practical experience.

We realise that divorce and separation are sensitive issues and we try to handle them in a sympathetic, civilised and positive manner and by advising clearly and at the same time acting firmly and decisively to resolve them, if possible by agreement but, if that is not possible, by obtaining the appropriate remedy through the courts.

We are situated in Bedford Row, London WC1 which is close to the High Court and the Central Family Court in Central London (close to Chancery Lane and Holborn underground stations).

The firm was established in 1991 by David du Pré who was admitted as a Solicitor in England and Wales in 1980 having earlier practised as a barrister. He is a member of Resolution (formerly known as the Solicitors Family Law Association), and of the International Society of Family Law. Overall he has more than 35 years practical experience of divorce law during which time he has been involved in many demanding, and often complex, or unusual cases and, through this, has developed many useful contacts in the field of matrimonial law. David du Pré runs the firm with the assistance of his Associate, Gaye Osborne, who is also a very experienced divorce lawyer. She was admitted as a solicitor in 1982 and is a member of Resolution and of the Law Society's Family Lawyers panel. We were among the first firms to operate as a "niche" specialist divorce practice concentrating exclusively on Divorce and Family Law and we believe that our clients welcome the "one to one" personal and confidential service and attention which this enables us to provide.

We have a broad range of clients (many of whom are from abroad, and mostly with moderate or substantial income and/or capital resources) but we do not undertake publicly funded (i.e. legal aid) cases. However, we believe that our charges are competitive, and compare very favourably with most other divorce specialist lawyers (of similar status, expertise and experience) in the centre of London, and we have a reduced fee for the first hour of advice without obligation to instruct us. 

If you would like advice we usually suggest a preliminary meeting unless you live abroad in which case we may be able to arrange a telephone consultation. For more information or to make an appointment please contact us either by telephone ( + 44 (0)20 7430 1950) or by emailing us (at the address below, or at the top left of this page), or by clicking on "Request Form" above and completing  and forwarding a message to us.
