Civil partnerships

The service is first class. A welcoming atmosphere is created from the first minute a client walks in the door.

Chambers UK

The Civil Partnership Act 2004 allows same sex couples to acquire the same rights as married couples through the registration of their civil partnership.  We advise clients both on the rights and responsibilities that they will acquire on entering into a civil partnership and on the consequences of ending a civil partnership.  If necessary, we will pursue or defend a civil partner’s rights through court proceedings.

In the same way that couples who are due to marry may enter a pre-marital agreement, we regularly advise clients who wish to enter into civil partnership agreements and we have considerable expertise in drafting and negotiating these agreements.

You will be assigned a dedicated partner as a main point of contact who will always be available to you and answer any questions you may have.  We always take a practical approach to our work and will offer you the most appropriate and cost-effective solution.
