Contractual Disputes

Any successful business is likely to have an ever-increasing portfolio of business contracts, whether with landlords, tenants, product warranties, subscriptions, contracted workers or suppliers. In an ideal world, all of these contracts would be honoured on both sides, with every party involved fully content with how the terms are being adhered to and the quality of any and all services rendered.

Sadly, that is not always the case, a fact that our litigation lawyers and dispute resolution solicitors are well acquainted with. Our expert team have provided a range of contract dispute resolution services to many business clients across Lancashire, the Wirral and the wider Merseyside region.

Divorce Proceedings

We can provide legal support as divorce lawyers, with our team experienced in dealing with sensitive and/or hostile negotiations, helping our clients to receive a fair and acceptable conclusion to their case. 

We fully appreciate that each and every marriage breakdown is unique and brings its own set of specific legal considerations and desired outcomes from the two parties involved, so we always aim to provide a sensitive and personalised approach to any client in such a situation.

Our Ormskirk solicitors can help support you through legal agreements on issues such as:

- division of financial assets

- visitation rights to children

- ongoing financial support from one party to another

We can also provide expert legal guidance during the separation of cohabiting couples and the legal issues that arise. Every marriage is different, but an increasing number are seeking to establish prenuptial agreements to clearly define legal terms with regards to any financial assets of the parties involved. 

Having built up an increasing level of experience in this area, our family law solicitors can provide legal services to anyone in Ormskirk, Southport and around Merseyside or Lancashire who find themselves in need of a prenuptial agreement.

Private Client Services

We also help with a range of personal legal matters through our Private Client Department, who can assist with legal guidance and the drawing up of documentation with regards to matters including Wills, Trusts, Inheritance Tax Planning, Power of Attorney and a range of other legal services in this area.

We understand that these matters will often be being dealt with by family members who may be less able to travel significant distance at this point, so we are happy for one of our Private Client Solicitors to arrange a home visit to deal with the required legal processes from the comfort of their own home.

Additionally, we offer a secure storage unit where you can keep these documents and ensure they are protected.
