I provide advice on all legal issues arising from relationship breakdown, including divorce, financial settlements and the arrangements for children.


One of my specialisms is resolving disputes about the arrangements for children, including cases involving:

  • Relocation of children in the UK and overseas
  • Allegations of abuse
  • Parental alienation
  • Fabricated or induced illness in children
  • Children with additional needs such as autism
  • Applications by grandparents
  • Parents with drug and alcohol dependency.

I also provide advice about surrogacy arrangements (in England and overseas), donor conception and co-parenting agreements, and adoption. I have specialist expertise when it comes to advising LGBT parents and parents-to-be.


I’m also experienced in advising co-habiting couples, both in terms of resolving issues relating to property and securing financial provision for children.


I act for clients with assets of all levels but I have particular expertise in dealing with cases where the family finances are complicated and high value and those with international elements.


My aim is always to try and help my clients come to a swift and fair agreement without going to court, whenever possible.
