What can I help you with?
I work with clients to resolve issues around relationship breakdown. Whilst how we do that will vary - court proceedings, solicitor negotiation, mediation or arbitration - a common thread is the complex circumstances, often involving an international element. My clients are looking for proactive support in developing a strategy based on what they are looking to achieve.
Example(s) of some recent work
Financial remedy work typically involves clients with significant assets, owner-managed businesses and those who work in the City or where there is an international dimension. These cases have been resolved in the High Court as well as appellate and lower courts, in mediation, arbitration and through solicitor negotiation.
I recently worked on a prenuptial agreement for a global, ultra-high net worth client and commonly deal with such agreements for clients with more modest wealth.
I have recently dealt with international child abduction case in the High Court and proceedings where permission to remove a child from the jurisdiction were sought.
