What can I help you with?

I am a specialist family lawyer and a trained collaborative lawyer. I advise on all aspects of a relationship breakdown including divorce and separation, and financial division, particularly where there are issues such as complex income structures, businesses and pensions. I also advise on arrangements for children, and wealth protection issues, such as cohabitation, pre and post-marital agreements.

Example(s) of some recent work

Recently I have assisted business owners and their spouses, people with complex pensions and with property portfolios. There are often international elements with my cases, including where someone is living abroad, or there is are assets overseas. I assist clients in a variety of ways, including advising them during the mediation process and using other out-of-court options such as private hearings.

What do others say about me?

In Legal 500 2020, I'm named as a key lawyer and a rising star, where the team is described as "unrivalled in terms of client management, preparation and detail."

Chambers 2020 describes the team as having "outstanding ability across complicated litigation as well as a variety of ADR methods".
