I deal with all aspects of family law including:

  • divorce, separation and relationship breakdown;
  • financial and property claims;
  • collaborative law;
  • pre-nuptial agreements;
  • civil partnership agreements;
  • cohabitants and living together agreements;
  • children;
  • against estate of deceased person; and
  • expert witness, litigation and ADR support.

I have developed particular expertise in high and mid value financial cases, co-habitee disputes, Schedule 1 Children Act 1989 matters, living together agreements for unmarried couples and pre-nuptial agreements.  I also regularly deal with claims by surviving spouses, ex spouses and co-habitees upon death.  My client base includes prominent captains of industry and leading professional sports persons.

In addition to Membership of Resolution, I am a qualified Collaborative lawyer, and am helping to drive Collaborative Law forwards in the southern region.

I regularly contribute articles for the media, including national publications such as the Family Law Journal.  I have also given radio interviews on cohabitee matters and have regularly chaired seminars on all manner of topics all along the south coast.

Since 2014 I have been Paris Smith’s Finance Partner, responsible for managing all internal and external financial matters affecting the firm.
