Richard Bebb, Partner and Family Lawyer, has been individually ranked by Chambers who noted:

"(Richard) is very bright and spots the issue very quickly," according to sources, who add: "He is very calm and reassuring to clients and has a good knowledge of the law." He offers notable expertise in pre-marital agreements and financial disputes arising from divorce.”

“At Goughs we take huge pride in our client care. I am tremendously proud of the family team for having been credited as a top firm for family and matrimonial matters. To be individually ranked is a great honour. Developing a rapport with my clients and helping them achieve their goals is what makes me tick as a lawyer. Having that recognized is extremely rewarding.”

Partner, Ross Phillips, was also among those to be individually recognized who noted that he:

Communicates well and is thorough," according to clients. He frequently assists with private children cases, pre-marital agreements and financial disputes.”

On being personally recommended by Chambers and Partners, Ross stated:

“Being noted on my communication with clients and thoroughness in the work I carry out is extremely pleasing. I pride myself on building meaningful and productive relationships with clients to ensure the best possible outcomes for them.
