Mark Vandaele

Family Law Partner

As a Partner and Head of the Family Law team I have extensive experience in all aspects of matrimonial law.

I am highly regarded as a matrimonial law specialist with particular expertise in dealing with complex financial matters on Divorce. Almost all of my clients are referred to me from past or existing clients. I was featured in the Sunday Times as one of the UK's top rated solicitors based on independent reviews.

I believe in dealing with client’s on a professional but relaxed basis. My specialism is putting clients at ease from the initial meeting and reassuring them that I am handling their matter.

Family breakdown is an incredibly difficult time in anyone's life and can often also affect the wider family. I believe in adopting a clear strategy from the outset with identifiable goals and objectives.

The department as a whole has an ethos of wanting to drive matters to a conclusion - the sooner the matter is resolved the better for all concerned.

I have extensive experience in dealing with Company disputes within Divorce Proceedings regularly acting and advising clients with significant business interests, as a result I have a close working relationship with a number of the leading barristers and experts.

I also advise clients on complex pension related issues on a daily basis. I am regularly instructed to advise regarding Armed Forces and Public Sector Pensions.
