Expertise

Our Family Law team represents individuals in all aspects of family law. We work closely with client’s trusted advisors, in particular accountants, financial planners and tax and commercial lawyers, to provide holistic and pragmatic direction to our clients. 
We begin every matter by asking the client what they wish to achieve and not by telling them what they might achieve. By allowing our client’s to define value and by working collaboratively with our clients’ trusted advisors, we are able to tailor solutions to individuals and achieve outcomes that otherwise might not be possible. 
 
By operating as part of a firm that offers world class Commercial, Taxation and Superannuation advice, the Family Law division at McInnes Wilson is uniquely placed to offer the best service for their clients.
