Goughs Solicitors Family Department recognised again in prestigious Legal 500 guide

Wiltshire based law firm Goughs Solicitors are proud to announce that their family law team has again been recognised in the market-leading Legal 500 guide to law firms in the south-west.

The Legal 500 is widely regarded as a definitive list of leading UK and worldwide law firms, and to be awarded its listing Goughs had to undergo a thorough and rigorous process. 

This included interviews with key employees, clients, and contacts; a detailed analysis of the firm’s specialist areas of practice; and the submission of detailed case studies of work undertaken in the preceding year. 

The Legal 500 states that Goughs’ work highlights include negotiating a prenuptial agreement for a marriage abroad,  securing 50% of the asset share in a cohabitation case where all assets were initially in a former partner’s name, excluding non-matrimonial property from a divorce settlement, and assisting with a cross-border relocation dispute regarding children.

Matthew Drew, Head of the Family Law Department said “The Legal 500 rankings are earned purely on merit, and are based on client feedback and in depth qualitative and quantitative research.  We constantly strive to deliver a high quality, tailored service to all clients.  To be recognised again by such a prestigious guide is high praise indeed”.
