Kelly Perks

I am a specialist family lawyer dealing with all issues arising on relationship breakdown in particular complex financial issues and child arrangements.

My approach to family law is to provide a personal and bespoke service to each client that I meet by enabling them to determine their short and long-term objectives with clarity, often in high conflict situations.

I utilise my skills as a Resolution trained Mediator and Collaborative lawyer to resolve family conflict in a constructive, realistic and pragmatic way and I act for a wide diversity of clients including company directors, professionals and high net worth individuals.

I enjoy engaging with other professionals in order to provide a holistic service to clients by ensuring that their longer term emotional and financial needs are met.
