HCR Launches New ‘One Couple, One Lawyer’ Approach to Divorce and Separation

Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ (HCR) Family Law team – one of the biggest in the country – is paving the way for more amicable divorces. Their new ‘Unified in Separation (US)’ legal service will allow divorce to be managed by a single lawyer, rather than having one lawyer for each party.

James Grigg, Partner and Head of Family Law at HCR said: “We understand the emotional pressures and complexities of divorce. That’s why we’re delighted to launch this ground-breaking service – the first in Gloucestershire – to help couples to achieve their shared objectives, without the conflict and costs of going to court.

“Couples using ‘US’ will receive advice on a joint beneficial basis to reach an agreement on one or all aspects of their separation. It is only suitable where there is no imbalance of power and where both parties are in the right frame of mind. Our team of expert family lawyers will carry out a full assessment to ensure interests are aligned.”

Alex Wilson, Partner and Head of Family Law at HCR’s Wye Valley Office added: “Since the introduction of no-fault divorce, we’re increasingly seeing a shift in the Three Counties of couples wanting to take a more amicable approach to their separation. Of course, this service is very much case-specific and couples must meet the criteria in order for us to act for both parties.”

The Top 60 law firm’s new tailored service will track the ‘one couple, one lawyer’ framework established by family lawyer group, Resolution – a community of family law professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues constructively.

Harrison Clark Rickerbys has more than 800 staff and partners based at offices in Cheltenham, Hereford, Worcester, the Wye Valley, Birmingham, Cambridge, Cardiff, Central England, London and Thames Valley, providing a complete spectrum of legal services to both business and private clients regionally and nationwide.

The firm has global reach via its network of independent law firms, LawExchange International. It also has a number of highly successful teams specialising in individual sectors, including family law, health and social care, education, technology, agriculture and rural affairs, finance and financial services, defence, security and the forces, and construction.
