Meet the Team

Mark Chapman

– Head of Family Department

I have been a practicing Family Law specialist for over 13 years. I have a wealth of experience in acting for clients across the many different areas of Family Law, and have been working as a Family Lawyer in North Hampshire and Berkshire since 2010. I am currently recognised in the Legal 500.

My particular area of expertise is in assisting clients on the breakdown of their marriages / relationships, and I am regularly instructed by High Net worth clients. To that end, when the case merits such an approach, I will often advise of the need to instruct a forensic accountant, in order to have a better understanding of the financial circumstances that the parties find themselves in.

I am also regularly instructed in Children Act proceedings, with many of those cases being of a complex nature.

Provided it is deemed to be in the best interests of my client, then I will always attempt to resolve cases on a voluntary basis. However I also recognise the very real benefit to clients in issuing Court proceedings at an early stage.

My varied caseload has resulted in me forging very strong links with Barrister’s Chambers both locally but also in London and so I am able to advise at any stage of the case on which Barristers would be suitable to assist.

Away from work, my two sons keep me busy, and I can often be found on the touchline watching them play rugby or on the boundary rope watching them play cricket. When I have some time to myself, I enjoy reading, cooking and eating out.
