Coronavirus update

Bakers Solicitors remains open for business and available to support the clients who need us.

Our solicitors are working, our telephone lines are open, and we are determined to ensure it is ‘business as usual’ with minimal disruption.

Technology allows Bakers Solicitors to continue representing clients who face personal difficulties. All our staff members have access to laptops and our staff are well equipped to work remotely. We have invested heavily in IT in recent times, including a state-of-the-art internet-based telephone system and cloud-based software. This enables us to keep disruption to an absolute minimum.

Whilst our offices will remain open, we will, in most cases, conduct client meetings by telephone or video conference. Most importantly we will continue to be available for existing and new clients.

Our family law solicitors are familiar with the recently published guidance from the President of the Family Division and as such will be able to represent clients at court hearings remotely or in person. Our criminal defence solicitors are well-used to video link technology but will also continue to attend police stations and courts in person when needed.

  • Collaborative Law

    Sensitive solutions, effective outcomes

Collaborative Law

Face to Face Negotiations

The collaborative family law process is a new way of dealing with family disputes. Each person appoints their own solicitor but instead of conducting negotiations between you and your partner by letter or phone, you and your respective solicitors all meet together to work things out face to face.

Each of you will have your solicitor by your side throughout the process and so you will have our support and legal advice as you go.

Helping you find the best solutions

As Collaborative Lawyers we would sign an agreement with you that disqualifies us from representing you in court if the collaborative process breaks down. That means we are absolutely committed to helping you find the best solutions by agreement, rather than through conflict.

Sometimes only a couple of meetings are needed, on other occasions four or five. These meetings follow agendas set by you and your former partner.

Once an agreement is reached, we will put it into effect. The divorce can be finalised and a Consent Order sent to the court for approval.

Call us on 01457 859 123 for further information and to book an appointment.
