Family law basically covers all areas of family life whether that is divorce, cohabiting disputes, pre-nuptial agreements or complications associated with marriage and civil partnerships. It can also cover all issues concerning children.
Family Law falls into two categories, legally aided and privately funded work and whilst this area of law was badly hit by the legal aid cuts it is a very buoyant area for Sacco Mann with plenty of opportunities for Fee Earners of all levels.
We work with high street firms, specialist high net worth teams and boutique family practices so there really is plenty of choice depending on your preference. Those with advocacy skills are particularly in demand but this is a great time to be a Family Lawyer.
