Modern Family Law Firm

A message from Sarah

Thank you for choosing to visit SKB Law. My goal is to transform the divorce experience.  I believe great client care makes all the difference. It’s how I supported my first client more than 20 years ago and it’s how I train my team today.  

We explain what’s going to happen and guide you through the process. Divorce doesn’t have to be a battle. Our approach is being strategic, culturally intelligent and collaborative…saving you time, money and energy in the long-run. 

I look forward to speaking with you.

Our Story & Mission

We’re an award-winning family law firm that’s been advising clients since 2007.  In 2019, we changed our name from Shire Solicitors to SKB Law to reflect our new direction as a specialist family law firm with integrated social impact. Our mission is to improve access to legal services. 

As we grow, we want to do more:

for our clients. we advise on all areas of family law – from divorce, children and financial matters to adjacent matters such as estate planning and immigration. As one of the leading divorce firms for British Asians, we also offer culturally appropriate legal services with advice on Islamic divorce, the nikah, mahr and assets such as gold jewellery.  We advise clients across England & Wales by phone, video or in-person at our offices in Bradford, Cardiff or London.

for our community. alongside the firm’s legal services, our SKB Law Academy supports people entering, or returning to, the legal profession. Since 2019, we’ve supported over 400 students through our employability workshops and 35 students through our work placements. In 2020, we launched Legal Stories, an online interview series between legal students and professionals. We also offer free legal clinics, consultations and legal resources.

We’re the proud recipients of the 2019 Bradford Business Awards for Community Contribution and finalists for Clio’s Reisman Awards.
