Practising Family Law means we often meet people during a difficult time. In this context, we pride ourselves on a sincere, client focused approach. We listen to your story, as the more we really understand our clients, the better our solutions can be.

All our partners and solicitors are highly experienced and well regarded in the field. While we have been involved in some of

the most complex and high profile family law litigation in Australia, many of our clients’ circumstances are relatively uncomplicated, and we can quickly resolve those matters.

Regardless of their situation, we give all clients thorough advice, with realistic and honest assessments of likely outcomes, and always with the strongest representation.

COLLABORATION ENSURES BETTER OUTCOMES

O’Sullivan Davies regularly collaborates with commercial solicitors as well as accountants and financial advisers, to advise on the Family Law implications of new and existing business structures. Companies and Trusts are commonly used to protect assets and distribute income, but governance requirements mean they are readily assessed when there are disputes.

Separation often means you will be making significant choices that impact on your future. As well as friends and family, you may benefit from an appropriately skilled, professional support network to provide guidance for improved longer-term outcomes. We can help connect you to leading specialists where appropriate.

INTERNATIONAL ISSUES RESOLVED LOCALLY

Our international Peer network provides access to proven practitioners in any international jurisdiction. We partner with them, keeping control and key decision making here – while taking their counsel concerning local laws that may affect the best strategy moving forward.
Our clients may be located or have interests in the United Kingdom, the United States, Singapore, Hong Kong, New Zealand, South Africa, Malaysia, India, Canada, or indeed anywhere in the world.
It means you get access to a top-flight resource of global professional legal expertise, providing comprehensive knowledge and experience within an international context. No matter where they are based, clients can draw on our skills and Family Law matters can be attended to.
