2. Tollers Solicitors, Business Legal Services, Northampton, UK
Family disputes and separations can cause immense stress to all concerned. Our specialist lawyers understand this, and every effort is made to offer a sensitive approach, while looking for the best practical solution.

We also offer and participate in family mediations, where control of the outcome is in the hands of the parties and not surrendered to the decision of a judge.

We advise on issues related to: Separation, Divorce, Cohabitation, Children, Finance and maintenance.

You and your spouse may be able to agree maintenance and how property and other assets should be divided. If this is the case, the matter can be dealt with by consent and it will generally not be necessary for you to attend court. If no agreement can be reached, there will have to be a full court hearing and it will be up to the judge to decide what will happen.

When making any decision relating to financial matters, it is the obligation of the judge to put the welfare of any children first. We will advise you about court procedures, paperwork required and representation in court if you need to attend.

Both parties must provide full and frank disclosure of their financial position which would include, a valuation of any property and pensions and other savings plans.

The firm became known as Dennis and Faulkner. In 1910, Charles Frederick Alsop joined as a partner, having previously been articled to Dr. Faulkner. This partnership resulted in the name Dennis Faulkner and Alsop, which has since been abbreviated to DFA.

The history of the firm begins in 1869. In that year W.G. Carter-Mitchell began practising as a solicitor in Bedford. On his retirement his practice was taken over by Mr. E. Taunton Williams, who was well known in the Bedford area, holding various public posts such as Clerk to the General Income Tax Commissioners.

Mr E.K. Martell formed the practice of Dixon Martell & Co in Kempston, Bedfordshire in 1934. In 1949 Dixon Martell & Co took over the Bedford practice of Carter Mitchell & Co.

The firm expanded to Northampton in 1971, practising from premises in Kingsley Park Terrace.

In 1972 Mr. E.K. Martell retired and the practice was renamed Borneo Martell & Partners. In 1982 the firm opened a new office in the centre of Northampton and now occupies a building that was formerly the science block of the Notre Dame Convent School. The building was extended in the late 1980s to accommodate more personnel.

In 1990, the firm separated from the Bedford office of Borneo Martell & Partners, to become the independent Northampton firm it is today. The firm was renamed borneohughesmartell in 2000.

In 1994 we were one of the first practices in Northamptonshire to pass the stringent quality tests necessary and to be awarded a Legal Aid Franchise.
