David Margo has made a genuinely innovative contribution to the divorce experience. After nearly 40 years as a senior partner in City law firms dealing with the commercial world, Margo heard a friend remark: ‘I need to do something about my divorce, but don’t know where to start’. That insight over 10 years ago led to the birth of Divorce Solutions, a divorce consultancy guiding clients through the complexity of the divorce process.
‘We help clients appoint the right lawyer, choose the right route for their divorce, help with the many “homework” tasks and stop them making expensive mistakes,’ says Margo. ‘Appointing the wrong lawyer and going down the wrong route can be very costly, both to the pocket and emotionally’.
By getting it right from the outset, the experience can be less stressful, less costly and more streamlined. Predominantly London-focused, their clients range from high net worth, time -short business people to the vulnerable who need ‘support at such a difficult time’. It’s obviously working: their experienced team continues to expand.
What’s particularly impressive is the depth of Margo’s research. He explains: ‘So that we can guide our clients to what is best for them, we have spent a great deal of time familiarising ourselves with the personality, expertise and approach of the abundance of family lawyers and the many different processes that are available to choose from.’
