Ian Lipscombe


Ian Lipscombe joined ACS Hards & Co. in 1978 and qualified as a solicitor in 1980, becoming partner a year later.

He brings extensive experience to the firm, specialising in all aspects of family law. In addition, his in-depth knowledge of residential conveyancing, estate administration and expertise in general dispute resolution means he can offer clients incredibly well rounded legal advice across many of the issues in life that tend to go hand in hand.

Ian is a member of Resolution, a national organisation of family lawyers committed to dealing with family problems in a constructive and responsible manner. He is also a trained family mediator, committed to resolving disputes in the most amicable way possible.
Ian’s breadth of experience over the past thirty years means he can call upon a variety of methods in order to find the best resolution for clients and their families who are facing difficult issues.

Outside of work, Ian is chairman of his local cricket club and is very passionate about preserving the values of the game and passing them on to younger players. He also sits on the executive of the Fullers Brewery Surrey County Cricket League which organises cricket across Surrey.
Ian is an active amateur singer. He currently runs the band at his local church, but his vocal history is something really quite memorable – as part of a choir involved in many recordings for film and other media, he appeared at the Barbican Theatre backing 1960s group Procal Harum with the London Symphony Orchestra!
