An experienced team of family law specialists

Silk Family Law launched in 2010, when the Dickinson Dees (now Bond Dickinson) family law team left the firm to set up as a stand alone niche practice.

Within Dickinson Dees, the team built an enviable reputation renowned for its expertise in handling complex and high value financial cases arising out of divorce and separation.

The same practitioners now offer their specialist experience, providing advice and representation in all types of matrimonial and family cases, with particular reference to cases involving corporate, farming and pension issues.

Our team consists of specialist family law practitioners, who belong to Resolution (a national organisation of family lawyers committed to a non-confrontational approach to all family issues) and the Family Law Bar Association.

Our lawyers each have a broad range of experience and specialisms, enabling them to provide a sensitive and authorative approach in all areas of family and matrimonial law.

The breadth of our team and our flexible charging structure allows us to meet the needs of all clients in a cost effective way.

In addition, we can offer clients alternatives to the court process, where appropriate. Four members of the team are qualified collaborative family law practitioners.
"Ian Kennerley is terrific; Kim Fellowes is an excellent solicitor; and Margaret Simpson is recognised for her ability to offer matter-of-fact and straightforward advice."
