Profile

I am a specialist family lawyer, mediator and collaborative lawyer.

My practise includes:

  • Advising on Divorce and separation and the financial implications that follow a relationship breakdown. 
  • Working with clients who often have complex financial arrangements with family businesses, trusts and substantial assets whether held in the UK or overseas.
  • Advising unmarried clients on their property rights and securing financial support where there are children.
  • Advising on children cases typically where there are difficult or sensitive contact issues or where international relocation is involved.
  • Advising clients who are planning to marry about pre and post-nuptial agreements.

I always strive for negotiated settlements but will involve the Court where necessary, particularly where there are issues of non-disclosure.  I regularly instruct Counsel from the top London chambers and have excellent relationships with expert forensic accountants, actuaries and other professionals in order to support my clients.

As a family mediator I promote Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).  In mediation, I meet with the couple to consider practical solutions to settling financial and/or children disputes.  Mediation aims to reduces conflict and improve communications between the couple, which must be a priority where there are children of the family.
