We understand that mums have a lot going on in their demanding lives and need quick, concise and relevant advice. We also know that it is not so easy to slip straight back into your career and try to juggle inflexible working hours, emergencies or sadly discrimination. We can also help you explore new avenues like buying a franchise or setting up a new business.

There are some areas of law that may only be relevant to working parents that we can advise on, but often it’s the same as everyone else only we understand your objectives far better and can empathise with your demands, as working mums here at the firm, juggling our own working life everyday.

So be it you are setting up your own business, buying a franchise, facing redundancy or discrimination, want to update your will or create a trust to include your new children, need advice on your nursery terms or you simply need family law advice we are on hand to offer specialist legal and practical advice. The firm employs working mums as well as acting for them and we are run by a working mum so we understand your family demands.

We also offer specialist advice in surrogacy, IVF, co-parenting, single parents, adoption, parental orders and alternative family structures. Everyone deserves a family and, if they want it, as well as a career ,we are here to help support both aspects.
