Darren Hark



I am a solicitor within the Manchester Family Law team.

I have worked in family law exclusively since 2014, having trained under the supervision of the highly regarded Ros Bever and her team of associates.

I advise and act in all aspects of divorce and matrimonial finance including those with international elements and high value and complex assets.  I also am regularly instructed to represent clients in relation to children issues including financial support and matters concerning child arrangements such as contact, residence, and parental responsibility.

Of the notable cases I've been involved with, a personal highlight has been assisting on two successful appeals to the Supreme Court in the cases of Sharland v Sharland and Gohil v Gohil.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I am passionate about helping my clients achieve their objectives during what are often difficult times.  Family law issues can arise to anyone at any time.  Everyone’s experience is different but it can be stressful, daunting, often upsetting and it can leave many people feeling out of control.  I take pride in guiding my clients through the complexities of their case, offering a sensitive and practical approach.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I enjoy sport and regularly play and watch football, and I like to spend my downtime with friends and family.  When I can, I also like to travel, although backpacking through South America following my student days now feels like a lifetime ago.  I am also presently attending night school to develop my Spanish language skills.
