Position

Caroline advises a diverse client base on both contentious and non-contentious matters, with a particular focus on cases involving an international element. Her practice ranges from drafting and negotiating pre-nuptial agreements to advising in complex financial disputes arising out of all aspects of relationship breakdown. She also has considerable experience advising in private law children matters, including in relation to contact disputes, relocation applications and abduction. Her practice involves a significant level of international work and she has particular expertise in complex cross-jurisdictional cases. She speaks French and Italian and frequently uses her language skills and experience to assist clients whose cases involve international elements. She has also spent time on secondment with a top family law firm in Los Angeles, California. Caroline recently advised in the important case of Prest v Petrodel which was heard in the UK Supreme Court. The extremely complex case, the importance of which extends beyond family law and into important aspects or trust and company law, was ultimately decided in her client’s favour.
