Hughes Fowler Carruthers is widely regarded as one of London’s leading divorce and family law practices. We specialise in ultra-high net worth and high-profile cases, especially those with international aspects.
Established over twenty years ago, all of our Partners are highly experienced and top rated in every aspect of family law. The Firm is described by The Times as “one of a handful of firms trusted by billionaire businessmen and showbiz superstars to manage sensitive proceedings.”
We retain our long-established Band 1 ranking in Chambers and Partners with four Partners ranked in Band 1 or as Star Individuals, and three other lawyers individually ranked. Year on year, we are also continuously ranked as a Tier 1 firm in The Legal 500 for family law, with three Partners listed in its ‘Hall of Fame’, three highly rated as Leading Individuals, two as Recommended Lawyers and one also ranked as a ‘Leading Individual’ for mediation. Described by the directories as “easily ahead of everybody else” and commended for providing “spot-on, excellent advice in what are stressful situations for clients”, our lawyers also have in-depth knowledge of many foreign jurisdictions and excellent overseas contacts.
We are the firm of choice for high value pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, especially those with cross jurisdictional aspects, and are renowned for keeping clients, their businesses and cases away from the glare of publicity.
Our approach is focussed on the objectives of our clients. We have extensive experience in mediation and collaborative approaches, but are also highly expert litigators when a more robust approach is required.
