"Payne Hicks Beach are arguably the strongest family law firm in the country, providing enviable strength and depth in both financial and private children law areas” Chambers UK

However, there are some cases which cannot be resolved without the assistance of the courts, for a variety of reasons.  Court proceedings may be the only option where there is an intractable dispute, there is an imbalance of power, where there is a history of domestic abuse (including coercive control or financial abuse) or where there is mistrust or suspicion surrounding disclosure (amongst other reasons).  We are highly experienced, skilled and tenacious litigators and if court proceedings need to be issued we will guide you through the process.  We have experience in all levels of court – from the Magistrates Court to the Supreme Court and we have acted for clients in some of the most high profile and cutting edge family law cases.  We understand that litigation can be stressful and we will support you throughout the process ensuring that you fully understand the procedure at every step.

We are extremely well connected within the family law world and will be able to recommend appropriate Counsel to represent you in court where necessary.
