Langleys Solicitors LLP fields separate family and children law teams, which collectively inspire confidence for their strength in public law and care proceedings and for their ‘great attention to detail’. Headed by Mark Day (‘an absolute expert in his field’), the family law practice handles a range of divorce issues, including those with an agricultural element, substantial business and corporate interests, or divorces involving complex trust and cross-border issues. Day also has a strong track record handling collaborative matters, and is assisted by Sheelagh Coles (‘she approaches cases collaboratively but isn’t afraid to fight her client’s corner when needed’), who focuses on private and public children law cases.
