Work Department

Family and childcare.

Position

Adeeba Naseem is a director of family and child care at Duncan Lewis Solicitors.

Adeeba’s area of expertise is in handling international and domestic family law proceedings at the High Court, in particular child abduction, surrogacy, adoption, and international adoption cases. She regularly deals with separation, divorce, and both domestic and international financial proceedings, including pre and post-nuptial agreements and rare cases involving the Queen’s Proctor. 

In child abduction matters, Adeeba regularly issues family proceedings both domestically and in different jurisdiction outside the UK; she liaises with organisations and authorities in other jurisdictions to ensure vulnerable children are successfully returned to their home country. She has handled a significant number of cases worldwide including the return of children abducted to Pakistan and Jamaica, two highly complex cases as neither country’s accession to the Hague Convention is ratified.

Adeeba handles both privately and publicly funded matters and has undertaken advocacy at the high courts and lower courts UK-wide. Her broad client base includes vulnerable victims of abuse, international high-profile clients, and cases with a public interest due to concerns of extremist links or children’s medical conditions. She works closely with a number of non-profit organisations that support and advise vulnerable members of their communities. These include children centres, foodbanks and charities and she often give talks and pro bono advice at domestic violence organisations focussing on securing protection through emergency injunctions for victims of abuse.

Career

Adeeba qualified as a solicitor in 2005 and has been a partner-level director at Duncan Lewis Solicitors since 2012.

Languages

Adeeba speaks fluent Urdu and Punjabi.

Member
