Cordell & Cordell, a US based law firm, are opening an office in London this month for male clients only.
Their Chief Executive believes men are unfairly represented in the UK Courts and is looking to bridge the gender gap in family law.
Family law firms in the US with all male clients have grown significantly over the last 20 years; Cordell & Cordell's marketing strap-line being "we're going to help you keep the dollars you earned", but many simply feel it's untrue that family courts are biased against men.
Something Ms Jacklin, QC of the Family Law Bar Association highlights in this article.
Men-only divorce law firms look set to be the latest import from America as Britain’s first practice targeting fathers who feel hard done by in the family courts sets up in London. Family law companies with all male client lists have been growing in popularity in the US since the Nineties as fathers and husbands worry women are more likely to get a better deal. One of these is Cordell & Cordell, who told American divorcing husbands “we’re going to help you keep the dollars you earned” and is now setting up in London this month.
