Toby’s work spans various areas of family law.  He specialises in:

Family law:

  • An interest based, non-court process, where progress is made in four-way meetings – you, your ex and both of your collaborative trained lawyers - to reach amicable agreement reflecting each party’s priorities and interests avoiding hard positions.

Farming divorces:

  • Separations involving owned and tenanted farming assets.

Family-owned business:

  • Understanding the different dynamics of family businesses and the needs of separating couples where a family business is involved.


Toby is supportive, honest and objective. He is solutions focused and keen to keep clients out of court where possible.

Toby is happy to use non-court-based mechanisms such as collaborative law, mediation or private FDR.

He has a measured approach at a particularly difficult time in people’s lives.


Toby is a specialist in his field.  He has memberships, accreditations and qualifications including:

  • Resolution member
  • Law Society assessor for specialist accreditation and advanced specialist accreditation
  • Trained mediator

I’ve worked with Toby Netting over a number of years on a protracted divorce settlement. Toby was very supportive and objective in his assessment of the settlement opportunities and risks. He put up with my occasional rants with good humour, always steering me back to a rational response.”
