People / Richard Dilks
- Separating couples
- Children disputes
- Prenuptial and cohabitation agreements
I am a Senior Solicitor specialising in divorce and family matters. As such, I am a member of Resolution and a trained Resolution collaborative lawyer.
My experience in dealing with divorces includes those involving family businesses (whether a limited company or a partnership), significant pension funds and multiple properties. I also have experience of dealing with pre-nuptial agreements, deeds of separation, property disputes between co-habitees and cases involving domestic abuse.
I can advise parents dealing with child related issues such as financial provision for a child and disputes about who a child should live with.
I have always specialised in family law matters and continue to work with my clients to achieve a sensible and cost proportionate outcome to the difficulties they face.
Having completed my law degree in Southampton and my LPC at Nottingham Law School, I previously worked in the Family Department at Norwich-based firm Fosters before moving to Hatch Brenner in 2007.
What do others say?
The Legal 500 has described Richard as a “divorce and finance specialist” who exhibits “an excellent balance of compassion, empathy and legal interpretation”.
‘The service provided by Hatch Brenner was truly excellent. Richard Dilks was incredibly supportive throughout my whole divorce process. His professionalism, experience and positive attitude made a very difficult and emotionally disturbing process bearable and helped me to cope emotionally with the highs and lows of the divorce process. I would unreservedly recommend Richard to anyone who requires someone to represent them through divorce.’
‘Richard was professional, helpful and polite. He is a credit to your company. Many thanks.’
