David du Pré & Co.   
Specialist Divorce and Family Law Solicitors in London, England, UK


We are Family Law Solicitors in London UK. We specialise in divorce including International divorces where English law is involved, as well as annulments, separation, cohabitation and civil partnership disputes, preparation of prenuptial agreements, and most related issues, but particularly financial issues arising from the breakdown of relationships.

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

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 Principal Registry of the Family Division 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 of the Supreme Court of 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 (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. Because it is possible to commence divorce proceedings in the Principal Registry even if the parties live outside London, we frequently advise and act for people from all parts of England or living in foreign countries (provided that there is a substantial connection with England).

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 or by emailing us (at the address below, or at the top left of this page), or by clicking on "Response Form" above and completing  and forwarding a message to us.
