Work Department





My expertise is in handling high net worth and complex financial divorces often with an international focus and involving off shore trusts, business valuations, pre acquired assets and issues of non disclosure. I also have significant experience in helping clients with disputes concerning children, including child arrangements, residence, abuse, abduction and adoption.  

Relationship breakdown is never easy and my clients expect matters to be dealt with efficiently and with sensitivity. My aim is to deliver realistic advice that achieves the best results in a cost efficient way and I take a hard line when we need to and push to settle when we do not.

Art has always been a passion and I also has significant expertise in the area of art and cultural property law, particularly disputes relating to title, authenticity and illegally trafficked goods.  I am the Deputy Chair of the Treasure Valuation Committee and teach on the issue of valuations and ADR.




Outside work I enjoy visiting galleries and art exhibitions. I am also a keen cook and fair weather cyclist and walker, preferably to a nice country pub. As a Northerner at heart, I enjoy cold water swimming and (very) occasionally take a dip in the Hampstead Ponds.
