Withers LLP

Work Department

Diana is well known as one of London’s divorce lawyer elite. She often advises clients on high value, high profile matters involving complex finances and international, cross border elements. However, she recognises that the stakes are high for any client and, whatever the level of wealth, Diana contributes her experience, strategic nous and ability to come up with creative solutions that minimise the financial and emotional cost of disputes with one's partner.

Whilst taking cases before the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal where necessary, Diana is also a mediator and renowned negotiator. Her preference is elegant and effective negotiation, providing clear and strategic advice.

She fights hard for her clients and her commercial, pragmatic approach keeps everyone enthused.  Her objective always is to get the best possible outcome at the lowest possible cost, both financial and emotional.

Both clients and opponents attest to her skill:

'There is no one to match her intellectually, or her wide ranging experience.'

'If I had to choose one solicitor in the entire world that I admired the most it would be her'.

Withers LLP


    In 2009, Italian Law introduced a new legal instrument, Business Network Contracts (‘BNC’), which allow aggregations of commercial entities to work together in an organised and durable manner (without having to establish a new company or a consortium) whilst retaining their own independence and individuality, as well as benefitting from various incentives and tax benefits.
