I specialise in all aspects of family law and relationship breakdown, including divorce, financial disputes between spouses and cohabitants, private law children cases and pre and post-nuptial settlements.

I have particular expertise in dealing with cases involving complex business assets, inherited wealth, farming assets, trusts and Armed Forces pensions. I also have a wealth of experience acting for clients involved in issues relating to children, including applications for removal from the jurisdiction, the future living arrangements for the children and acting for grandparents.

As a member of Resolution and a trained collaborative family lawyer, I seek to provide an alternative to litigation for my clients if appropriate, and steer my clients towards workable solutions.

My aim is to help clients leave the marriage with their dignity intact and feeling that they have retained control of the process and, where possible, developed a positive post separation parenting relationship with their former spouse.

I am named as a Next Generation Partner in the Legal 500 2022 guide.
