Matrimonial and Family

Virtually nothing in life is as stressful as a family breakdown.

At such times our approach is to balance the need to protect your interests with keeping the wider picture in perspective.

The Family team works closely with Keelys’ specialist teams dealing with trusts & taxation and corporate & commercial issues. We work closely with other specialists in the fields of pensions, accountancy, taxation and property to ensure that financial settlements arising out of family breakdown are managed smoothly and every facet of the case is considered.

All the lawyers in Keelys’ Matrimonial and Family department provide clear professional advice in a reassuring, caring and practical way backed by many years of experience specialising in this area of law. Members of the department have achieved specialist accreditation with Resolution – the family lawyers specialist group.
