Position

Jenny is a Partner at Gardner Leader in the Family Team and is based in the Newbury office.

Jenny advises clients on all aspects of divorce / relationship breakdown and children issues and has a particular reputation for helping clients with regard to their finances.  This includes Prenuptial, Postnuptial and Cohabitation agreements, where the level of assets makes it a sensible precaution – thereby minimizing the possibility of issues later in life.

Jenny is best known in the profession for her long track record helping busy and demanding clients resolve the financial issues arising from divorce or relationship breakdown. This expertise is especially valuable in complex and/or high value financial situations especially where businesses, business interests or family trusts are involved and the potential disruption goes far beyond the purely personal dimension.

Jenny actively promotes modern approaches including mediation and collaborative law which help preserve dignity as well as potentially reducing costs.

Member

Jenny is on Gardner Leader's Management Board as Finance Partner.

Gardner Leader LLP's experienced team is led by practice head Seona Myerscough , who specialises in child care work and is highly regarded by guardians and sought after by parents for representation. Jenny Buchanan  specialises in the resolution of financial issues in divorce and relationship breakdown, alongside her role as a finance partner for the firm and member of its management board. The team was strengthened in 2017 by the hire of senior associates Suzy Hamshaw from Charles Lucas & Marshall and Simon Fisher  from Bells Solicitors into the firm’s Newbury and Maidenhead offices respectively. Longstanding partner Collette Bailey retired from the partnership and the firm at the end of 2017.
