As a Partner and Head of the Family team, my main area of work is advising clients on financial aspects of relationship breakdown. Current case load includes cases involving multi-million-pound assets (including pensions/properties/investments and businesses). I represent a wide variety of individuals including senior executives, business people, GPs, accountants, sportspeople etc. Part of the job involves liaising with accountants, actuaries and other professionals so that clients receive the best advice tailored to their circumstances.

I also deal with disputes involving children and in particular helping clients to make child focused arrangements following relationship breakdown.

Finally, I am building the growing area of prenuptial/cohabitation contracts.

I am a member of Resolution and a trained mediator. I am committed to trying to resolve matters in a constructive manner, recognising that litigation, whilst important, is often not the best solution to family breakdown.
