Over the last ten years Charles and Co.’s Family Department has grown from strength to strength. The Department has been established on the principle of providing proactive and honest advice while simultaneously trying to secure resolutions that can minimise stress to the clients.
Gurjit Chahal, head of the department, has particularly focused on resolving disputes in a constructive way designed to preserve the dignity of their clients and encourage agreement. Over the years the department has worked on an ever increasing number of high net worth cases and seen a trend in individuals wanting to work out financial disputes with minimal hostility, which is always favourable, as this approach helps preserves matrimonial assets for the parties themselves.
In the last ten years the department has also developed their practice in Child Abduction cases and have worked on a number of such cases, developing a reputation for being thought leaders in this area of law. Gurjit was recently asked to present for the Kent Chief of Police and the Kent Equality Cohesion Council on the issue of Child Abduction and in particular to highlight recourse available in the event a child is abducted out of the jurisdiction.
Gurjit has been recognised for building a strong and respected department, by being nominated on a number of occasions for various awards. In particular in December 2013 Gurjit won the British Asian Hafta Award for best female employer.
