From new relationships to resolving conflicts

Whether you’re in the first throes of a blossoming relationship or facing the prospect of an unravelling marriage, it’s a good idea to get early legal advice to protect your interests, as well as those of your children, if you have them.

Compassionate, sensitive yet sensible guidance can help you see the wood for the trees and decide what’s really important to you. We can set you out on the next stage of your life with confidence, for example with a pre-nuptial agreement. Or we’ll support you through your difficult journey, if you’ve decided divorce is the only solution.

We’re committed to helping you find the best outcome. Sometimes this means mediation or the collaborative law process rather than resolving disputes through the courts.

Our service covers the full range of family law and related issues.

At Wollens we believe that sustainability is fundamental to the long-term success of our business and the communities we are a part of.  We actively engage and demonstrate our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint. There were two specific identifiers which helped us prioritise ESG as firm. The first was the 2050 net zero target set by the government, and secondly the feedback from our staff survey which indicated that this was an issue for many of them.
