Members of Resolution

Lupton Fawcett is a proud member of Resolution, an organisation of family solicitors committed to ensuring divorce and family law disputes are resolved amicably and as constructive as possible. To do this, our team follows the Resolution Code of Practice, which aims to alleviate the stress and anxiety that can be involved in these cases.

This includes placing the individual or family at the centre of the case so a settlement is reached collaboratively and with our client’s needs in mind. We aim to settle cases through non-court dispute resolution processes, including mediation, collaborative practice and arbitration, which can often be a more cost-effective solution.

Overall, we aim to set your mind at ease, help you focus on the important issues in your life, and make it easier to provide for your children in the future. To help you do this, we offer access to a range of accountants, independent financial advisers, banks and counsellors, so you can easily get back on your feet if a relationship should break down or if you are involved in a family dispute.

Chris (Burns), I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done. Your firm is amazing. You and Sophie have been fantastic in dealing with my divorce and complex financial issues, as well as resolving the long term arrangements for my son. Your staff do what they are supposed to do. They do it with respect, professionalism, kindness and care at some of the most difficult times I have had to face. No words can tell you what this has meant to me. I will never be able to thank you enough.

The service we received was excellent and we were impressed by your professional and sympathetic approach. It was good to understand the processes involved in what was a complex case. In comparison to the responding solicitors, we were very impressed by the detail of your letters and the care in which you took to represent our concerns. Should the need arise in the future, we would have no hesitation in contacting you. Thank you once again for your guidance and support Richard (Buckley).

Mr and Mrs Davis

You have been outstanding on getting this total nightmare resolved! And I applaud you whole heartedly.

"Not only do I think Chris Burns is a good solicitor, he was able to calm me down and reassure me when things got tough."

Chambers and Partners 2019

Lupton Fawcett’s Family team, in particular Richard Buckley, have consistently provided a service that was not only strong, balanced and responsive but also never lost sight of the deeply personal and emotional nature of my case.

Mr Shaw

Chris Burns was recommended to me by a business contact. He guided me through my divorce and helped me reach a financial settlement which I was satisfied with as well as the other party. Chris also provided a high level of service and always offered sensible and clear advice throughout the process

Mr G

I instructed Chris Burns to draw up a post nuptial agreement as I was undertaking a management buy out of my business. Chris provided clear, practical and pragmatic advice. He was assisted by Richard Buckley and together they were able to advise me about and draw up the Agreement and helped me reach my objective diligently and efficiently.
