This 1 July, the team here at Leiper Gupta Family Lawyers Ltd are celebrating our seventh year in business, providing expert family law advice to a diverse range of clients in Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire and beyond. It’s been a fascinating, exhilarating and highly successful seven years too!
How it all began
Business Partners Rita Gupta and Anne Leiper first met in the Family Law department of a firm of local solicitors. Rita had developed both and interest and expertise in Family Law and domestic violence resolution.
Anne was the Partner of the Family Law department Rita joined, gaining extensive experience in all areas of family law and particular expertise in dealing with financial settlements and solutions on relationship breakdown.
Founding principles of LGFL LLP
In 2008, the two ladies decided to set up their own practice, to offer a different approach to family law than many local family lawyers were able to offer.
They created their boutique family law firm with three principles firmly in mind:
- No two cases are the same – all services are individually tailored to each client
- Easy access for all clients to successful litigators, especially in the light of rising court applications over the last few years.
- City expertise can be located in the country – clients should be able to access City level advice in a relaxing and discreet environment
Since moving to their offices in Park House at Warbrook House in Eversley, the two Partners have developed and enhanced their interest in collaborative law and reduced stress approaches to divorce, family disputes and relationship planning.
Anne is now a fully accredited Collaborative Lawyer and is active in her local Collaborative law POD. Rita is a member of the Law Society’s Family Law Panel and is a member of Resolution.

From working with the partners to the wonderful and patient staff in the office, LGFL has been a real stabiliser in what has been a very difficult time.

“Anne has represented me on four occasions, twice in matrimonial settlements, a financial matter, and a child residency case. Her knowledge of matrimonial law and understanding of all family matters coupled with her tireless work ethic sets her apart from her peers.”
“Rita helped me through difficult Divorce and Child care proceedings. Rita attended a multiple of court hearings with me, not just for my financial settlement but for my children too which included a full CAFCASS report. Rita has a very professional work ethic and took control where control was needed for the benefit of not only myself, but my three children too.”
Petitioner Wife in Divorce Proceedings
“Leiper Gupta Family Lawyers helped me tremendously throughout my divorce process. They provided me not only with excellent technical expertise but as importantly, gave me tremendous support and guidance, whilst at the same time respecting my wishes to settle in the most peaceful and mutually satisfactory and respectful way. Although I was on the other side of the world throughout the proceedings, LGFL dealt with all aspects of the process, which resulted in my physical presence never being required. This was a major benefit to me as I the demands on my time were high.”
