Independent, expert advice from your financial planning experts

About Us

Family Law Financial Planning Ltd is a joint venture between specialist family law solicitors Family Law Partners and North Laine Financial Management Ltd - a Chartered and independent financial advisory firm, also based in Brighton.

Family Law Partners Director Alan Larkin describes the joint venture as an important step for the team of family law experts in fulfilling their aim of providing clients with a fully holistic first class service.

We have long recognised that the expertise of an independent financial planner can add value to our clients and provide much-needed practical advice at a difficult time. Many of our clients have to deal with issues like settlements and wealth protection when experiencing a family dispute, and offering specialist advice in this area is an important addition to the legal advice we provide as a firm”.

Going on to explain what the new service offering means to clients, Director Robert Williams, said: Proper planning and sharing easy to follow information will give clients who might need it the confidence to understand how their financial profile will look now and going forward into retirement. Ongoing and trusted support will be available to ensure our clients’ future financial needs are regularly monitored. Importantly, a financial planner is focused on both assisting clients with their present circumstances, and helping them build informed plans for their future. This approach, which is focused on the future of all parties in mind from the outset, is at the heart of this new venture”.

The venture with North Laine Financial Management Ltd was born out of a shared commitment to excellent service and a solution-focused approach based on the same values. North Laine Financial Management Ltd was established over nine years ago and from launch has provided fully independent and impartial advice to clients on a fee only, no commission basis.

Sam Jermy of Family Law Financial Planning Ltd explains the uniqueness of this independent approach and what it means for clients: “the removal of commission payments in the advice process means that client interests are always put first. The financial planner is not influenced to ‘sell’ products and can therefore remain fully independent from product providers and insurance companies. This enables the planner to focus on providing impartial, cost effective financial advice. Whilst the financial advisory market is now waking up to this approach, it has been a core value and ethos of North Laine’s since formation over nine years ago.”
