Partner and Head of Family
I am a partner and head of the firm’s family law team, specialising in high value divorce cases, particularly where there are unusual or complicated assets.
I am an accredited member of Resolution, a Mediator and Collaborative Solicitor with more than 25 years’ experience.
My clients are typically professionals, company directors, owner managers, army or navy officers and ex-pats. They want clarity and the reassurance of knowing their interests will be protected.
I provide clear, robust advice that helps my clients make the right pragmatic decisions to enable them to get through the process and out the other side. I know that this process can be unfamiliar and upsetting for many. Being a good lawyer means knowing how to help clients towards an outcome that is right for them.
