As a family lawyer, I specialise in helping families and individuals through the difficulties caused by relationship breakdown, particularly the financial issues that arise. I also advise on family law matters affecting children and have extensive experience in cases with an international dimension. I regularly act for parents in disputes about residence, contact, lawful removal from jurisdiction and child abduction.
I also have a particular expertise in the legal challenges experienced by cohabiting couples. This includes financial provision for children of unmarried parents. It also includes cases brought under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 by separating cohabitants.
I have extensive family law experience in high net worth situations and have advised a number of senior professionals, entrepreneurs, professional athletes and sportspeople, celebrities and their spouses.
