Michael Dyer

Michael Dyer joined Taylor Fordyce at the beginning of October 2013 as a Family Law Consultant to set up, promote and run their new Family Department.

Michael has a wealth of legal experience specialising in Family Law and has an impressive depth of understanding, knowledge and skills to help guide and support clients through the difficult and emotional times of separation and divorce. His range of experience includes business and commercial transactions, civil litigation and private client all of which provide a broad base from which to secure beneficial outcomes for clients.

For many years he has been a partner and head of the Family Team in a large and established Southampton based firm of solicitors and is an accredited specialist with Resolution, in advocacy and financial remedy, and is also a Collaboratively trained lawyer and a Resolution trained Family Mediator qualified to undertake MIAMS (Mediation and Information Meetings). Michael is a specialist in most aspects of Family Law including divorce, separation, pre and post nuptial settlements, financial remedy, domestic abuse, cohabitation and children’s issues.

He brings his strong belief in the skilful resolution of disputes by negotiation and agreement, particularly where children are involved, but accepts that when that fails hard hitting litigation must follow through the Court. He now looks forward to the challenge of building a new department to service the needs of the local community and surrounding villages.

He is married with 2 grown up children and when not working enjoys foreign travel, reading, equestrianism and golf.
