I am a solicitor based in central London and specialising in divorce and family law. While my practice covers all issues arising out of relationship breakdown for both married and unmarried couples, I have a particular interest in financial division on divorce and on financial support for the children of unmarried parents.
I head the London team at Family Law Partners, a top-tier “leading boutique firm” (Chambers UK 2019). We are passionate advocates of keeping family disputes out of court wherever possible and work collaboratively with other professionals to provide holistic support for you and your family through the separation process.
Known for my calm and reassuring manner I give clear, pragmatic advice to help identify and achieve the best solution for you. I am recognised for being numerate, analytical and thorough, which makes me a particularly good match for those with complicated financial affairs.
I am a committed member of Resolution, an organisation of family lawyers and other professionals committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes, and sat for two years as chair of London YRes, representing the 500+ junior members of Resolution in London. I am a trained family mediator and also accredited in collaborative family practice, an increasingly popular form of alternative dispute resolution in cases where clients are able and willing to engage in constructive negotiations.
There are many times, however, when a tougher approach is needed and I am first and foremost an accomplished litigator and am not afraid to fight hard for my clients when the situation requires it.
I have been identified as one of the leading figures of the new generation of family lawyers by independent legal directory Legal 500, which describes me as “bright and forward thinking and … committed to finding the best resolution for [my] clients”. In 2018 I was shortlisted for both a Family Law Award and a Citywealth Future Leaders Award. I was previously was named as a “Top 35 Under 35” rising star by ePrivateClient in 2017 and was recommended in the 2017 and 2018 Citywealth Leaders Lists. The 2016 Legal 500 directory described me as “thorough” and a “key figure” in an “exceptionally competent and dedicated team”.
