Richard Crallan qualified as a specialist family law barrister in 1992 and represented clients in court for the next 10 years, mainly conducting trials where either the matrimonial assets were being divided up or where the parents couldn’t reach an agreement for their children’s living arrangements.
Richard spent 3 years working as a specialist family law “solicitor and barrister” in Perth, Western Australia which greatly benefits those many clients who have family connections and assets located in Australia.
In 2002 Richard started working as a Solicitor Advocate and has dealt with high net worth clients at the ‘magic-circle’ family law firm, Sears Tooth, in Mayfair, London. Many cases involved international property disputes and the complex interrelation of laws of more than one national jurisdiction.
Richard is prepared to act tirelessly to get results for his clients and believes in providing forceful, practical and jargon-free advice. He shares the hope of his clients that their legal difficulties can be sorted out as quickly as possible, without incurring unnecessary legal costs.
Louise joined Crallans as Senior Associate, in May 2012 having previously worked in Bristol as the Matrimonial Finance Team leader in the family department of a national firm.
Louise is a Resolution accredited specialist in two areas - finances and children (private law).
Qualified as a solicitor for over 20 years, Louise has a wealth of experience in handling complex financial cases on the breakdown of marriage and relationships.
During what is inevitably a difficult and stressful time, Louise aims to guide her clients through the process and achieve the best possible outcome for them.
