Based in central London (close to Chancery Lane and The Strand) we are conveniently located for anyone coming to visit us from Camberwell and other parts of the London Borough of Southwark. We represent people who are going through a divorce or who are facing another issue to do with family law, including disputes over children or previously agreed financial matters.

If you live in Camberwell and are looking for a divorce solicitor we would be delighted to have a free initial conversation without any obligation. Even without knowing your full financial circumstances or the position regarding your children we can offer worthwhile, preliminary guidance to help you decide what steps you should take next.

Divorce raises complex issues. It doesn’t matter how many children you have or how much or how little money is available to divide between you and your spouse. Reaching a final agreement with your spouse is rarely straightforward. We deal exclusively with family law and related matters. Below we’ve listed some of the main areas you need to consider during your divorce

  • Divorce and Separation – We advise clients in Camberwell and across Southwark who are considering divorce or who have just begun the process. Where required we can assist with the administrative aspects of divorce, ensuring online applications are completed accurately and that financial claims are notified to the court at the appropriate time. This can minimise any delay in the process and avoid any negative impact on your financial settlement. After we’ve formed a full picture of your circumstances, we can advise you on the best way to proceed.
  • Financial Aspects of Divorce and Separation – There are no hard and fast rules about how assets are divided on divorce. Courts take multiple factors into account, including the duration of the marriage and your future earning capacity. At Brookman we deal with cases ranging from the relatively straightforward involving modest assets to the most complex cases centring on high value assets located in multiple jurisdictions. We bring decades of experience to the table, giving us the ability to advise you early on about what a realistic settlement might look like. Our insight and advice can help simplify and shorten even the most bitterly contested divorce.
  • Pensions – Sometimes your pensions are not given appropriate weight in financial discussions. But they can be as significant a matrimonial asset as property. In our experience it’s increasingly the case that one spouse – often the financially weaker spouse – overlooks his or her full pension entitlement in the quest to get a final agreement. We’ll advise you of your pension rights and where necessary engage a specialist to accurately assess the value of any pensions that form part of the matrimonial pot. This ensures you get what you are due without jeopardising your final settlement.
  • Issues That Concern Children – We’ll work with you and your spouse’s representative to reach an agreement about where your children will live after divorce, and what time they will spend with the non-resident parent. If agreement isn’t possible, we’ll apply to court for the necessary Child Arrangement Order. Many families in and around Camberwell have connections abroad. Because of our international experience we have often been asked to act in Hague Convention cases where a child has been removed from the jurisdiction of England and Wales. In the past we have acted for the parent removing the child and for the parent seeking the return of the child to the UK.
  • Pre And Post Nuptial Agreements – Increasingly recognised in England and Wales these agreements can help simplify matters in the event of divorce. In appropriate cases, they can also help safeguard family inheritances. We can advise on whether they might be appropriate for you.
  • Divorce With An International Angle – Brookman is recognised widely for its experience in international divorces. If there is international property or you or your spouse have connections with another country, your divorce could potentially be decided outside of England and Wales. We advise on how this may impact your financial settlement and child arrangements.


Our clients in Camberwell and throughout the borough of Southwark include local businesspeople and other professionals. We believe they choose us for a range of reasons, including:

  • Many like the way our team is structured. We aren’t a faceless institution where your case might get lost among hundreds of others or where you’ll have to deal with multiple lawyers who may not always be across the detail of your case. Nor are we so small as to lack the resources and back-up to provide the truly comprehensive service you need. We have a substantial team of expert lawyers on hand to offer you the highest quality technical advice on all aspects of divorce, including on specialist matters like international divorce and complex financial matters.
  • Our main office is a short walk from Chancery Lane Underground station so it’s really easy to get to from all parts of Southwark, including Camberwell. It’s also convenient for anyone living in Camberwell who works in or around the City.
  • Not everyone wants to meet their solicitor in person. Many are happy to receive advice and updates by text, phone and Zoom and meet their advisor only when absolutely necessary. As a firm however we think it’s important to offer a personal, face to face service when that’s what the client wants. Clients in Camberwell are always welcome to arrange appointments with us at any of our offices, including our central London base next to Chancery Lane Tube.
  • We have earned Lexcel accreditation – the Law Society’s quality mark for client care – and are recognised by the Legal 500 directory. Many members of the team are recommended for their exemplary work in family law.
  • As members of Resolution, we work towards finding a constructive outcome to your divorce no matter how conflicted you and your estranged spouse are over key issues. Our job is to remove any obstacles to a negotiated settlement and make what can be a complicated, lengthy process as smooth as possible for you. Where it becomes necessary to engage in full blown proceedings however, you’ll find us as tenacious as any family law team when it comes to protecting your position in court and outside it.
