I am a partner in the firm’s family team. Having worked previously with a well known West End firm, I welcomed the opportunity to join Moore Blatch and develop the firm’s family law service in the Richmond area.
My clients are drawn from many different professions and industry sectors, both in the UK and abroad, and are often high net worth individuals with assets in more than one country. They want to know that their legal team is experienced in handling high value and complex cases such as theirs and that their lawyers are amongst the best around.
I have specialised in family law for over 20 years and have particular experience in handling complex financial settlements, often involving assets held in two or more countries. I am an accredited member of the Law Society Family Law Accreditation scheme, a trained mediator (not currently practising) and a collaborative lawyer.
My experience covers all aspects of family law, from involvement at the start of a relationship with the preparation of pre nuptial, civil partnership and cohabitation agreements and post separation including divorce and separation, financial remedies and the arrangements for the children.
Relationship breakdown is usually a very distressing and emotional experience. My clients need a sympathetic and understanding approach, whilst also wanting to know that I have a thorough grasp of the details of their case and that I will pursue their interests with tenacity and determination.
My clients can be confident that I will give them the best objective legal advice, based on my expertise, skills and years of experience. I also help them to reach a resolution in a non-confrontational and cost effective manner and where appropriate, help them explore the options such as mediation and collaboration.
I remain passionate about family law and have a large network of fellow professionals to assist my clients with the many issues they face at this time, providing a full package of support from trusted advisors.
My clients can feel assured that they are getting the best legal advice available, together with the support of lawyers who work with empathy and care. You can view our latest blog entries here.
