Tanya Dhillon, formerly of Sears Tooth and Mishcon de Reya, heads our Family team.

We undertake a wide variety of family law work including divorce and financial settlements, residence and contact arrangements for children (formerly known as custody), spousal and child maintenance payments, domestic violence injunctions, adoption and prenuptial agreements. We also have specialist experience in complex trust matters, removal of children from the jurisdiction and locating hidden assets.



Our family lawyers understand the importance of matching the best legal approach to fit a client’s specific requirements. We strive to minimise the impact of legal proceedings in family breakdown and promote mediation wherever possible. When a tough approach is needed our lawyers will robustly defend our client’s interest drawing upon extensive experience in the High Court and Court of Appeal.


During her career Tanya has represented celebrities and household names from around the world, particularly in the music industry. She has worked at some of London’s leading law firms including highly regarded Sears Tooth and Mishcon de Reya. She regularly instructs top barristers from the leading London chambers which have a proven track record of achievement for her clients.

Clients seek Tanya's advice because of her reputation as a robust yet pragmatic lawyer. She is also well known for her first class client care during what can be an unsettling and drawn out process. She is a member of Resolution which supports improvements in the family justice system and promotes mediation in situations where it would be beneficial.
