My experience

I am a partner in the family team with over 25 years experience as a specialist family lawyer, dealing mainly with:

  • divorce and separation;
  • financial settlements following relationship breakdown;
  • pre nuptial agreements;
  • disputes about children;
  • property disputes between non married partners;
  • living together agreements for partners;
  • mediation; and
  • collaborative law  

My divorce and financial experience includes advising on high net worth financial cases, cases involving third parties such as relatives who have contributed financially, complex company and partnership structures, family and other trusts, and inheritances.

I advise people at the start of a relationship in relation to prenuptial agreements and living together agreements, both of which have become more important with the rise of second and blended families. I also advise on disputes between unmarried partners and in relation to financial provision for children.

I am very experienced in dealing with disputes relating to children and bring a practical and sympathetic approach with clear goals and advice. My experience includes dealing with cases involving relocation of children within the UK and abroad, disputes regarding the religion of a child, choice of school, parental responsibility, serious mental health issues of a parent, and parental alienation.

I am a qualified collaborative lawyer and mediator, and member of the Resolution  Pod and these skills enhance the service I give to clients across all areas of my practice.

I provide my clients with practical advice on their unique situation, which listens to their concerns and priorities and gives them a  clear way forward.

Clients comment that they really feel that I have their best interests at heart and that they value the real life, practical approach that  I bring to dealing with their problems at a difficult time for them.

I wish I could be in a position right now to shake your hands personally, give you a hug and offer my thanks in person for representing me through this challenging period spanning three years. During the way we maintained our integrity at all times. A successful campaign is built on solid foundations and it was your work, advice and strategy that laid our foundations. Thanks for having my back, thanks for your loyalty and for persevering through all of our challenging moments like troopers.

Sarah combines empathy with a forensic knowledge of her subject, which is impressive. A trip to the lawyer is not something high on most people’s idea of fun, however, it says a lot about Sarah that I still look back on experiences with her in a positive light.

Matt Stone, Founder - ROI

I have been hugely impressed with the professionalism and personable service we have received from Sarah Passemard and Rachel Osgood in dealing with what was a very sensitive and emotive issue. At all stages, the advice and guidance we received has been honest, clear and eminently professional whilst simultaneously being empathetic to the emotional distress that has been involved. I have also been impressed at the willingness to continue to support the family in a less conventional manner, which I had not expected would be possible. I have no doubt our family would be worse-off had it not been for the support and actions of Sarah and Rachel, and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.

Sarah and Rachel were absolutely fantastic and I cannot thank them enough for helping me to go through a difficult time. They were always available, professional, diligent and wise but more importantly they were extremely good listeners and very human. They are amazing family lawyers and I would wholeheartedly recommend them.

My contact with Sarah and her colleague was supportive and helpful. Sarah was compassionate and took time to explain my options ensuring I understood and clarified any questions I had.
