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.
