Family Law


Gemma is a senior associate in the family team, and has specialised in financial matters and arrangements for children for over 10 years. Gemma’s work has been recognised by the Legal 500 and the high calibre of her work means she is one of their recommended ‘Next Generation’ lawyers. Her clients regularly include business owners and directors, investment property owners, academics, teachers, medical professionals, those involved in the rural sector and members of the uniformed services (such as military and police).

She supports her clients with advice where they feel able to discuss matters with their former partner, either through mediation or direct conversations.

Gemma believes her clients benefit from her constructive way of dealing with matters and so has been a member of Resolution (previously the Solicitors Family Law Association) since 2006. She trained at Freeths, when it was known as Henmans, both in Oxford and Woodstock, and has been with the family team in Oxford since qualification.
