"We recognised a gap in the market for specialist family law practitioners in this particular area which, from a legal perspective, is primarily focused on commercial and finance work."

Opening for business later this month, the new office will provide clients in the area with advice on divorce, family finances, matters relating to children, co-habitation, separation, and pre and post nuptial agreements.
Partners Philip Hunter and Pui Uro, who established Hunter & Uro in May of last year, will run the new office.
Pui Uro said: “We have had great success in offering a bespoke and convenient family law service to clients local to our Bedfordshire office. We wanted to expand that offering to potential clients living and working in the City. We recognised a gap in the market for specialist family law practitioners in this particular area which, from a legal perspective, is primarily focused on commercial and finance work.”
Philip Hunter added: “This is a significant milestone for Hunter & Uro and sees us move from a start-up firm in rural Bedfordshire to holding a central London office in less than a year!
“Our success so far has been built on our ability to offer a tailored service to clients, taking the time to understand what they are seeking to achieve in their case, treating them as individuals, addressing any fears or concerns about legal matters that they may have and guiding them through a challenging period in their life by going above and beyond the usual standard of service that many people expect to receive from a solicitor.
“We are extremely proud of the work we have undertaken on behalf of our clients so far and are both excited by the prospect of what is to come in the future. We look forward to meeting and working with the people of London.”
The new office, which is a Grade II listed building, is located at 1 Cornhill, London EC3V 3ND.
