Work Department



Senior Associate 

Fiona is a Senior Associate in the Birmingham family team. I specialise in resolving complex financial matters on divorce and children cases with a complicated welfare or international element.
I also have specialist knowledge and experience in surrogacy and fertility law, which is a niche but growing area. 

Fiona is known for her forensic approach and seek from the outset a commercial solution to the resolution of family matters.

She believes that going through this process is intensely personal. People skills are just as important as legal skills when resolving these issues and she always try to find out-of -court solutions, but is also a robust litigator when necessary and strive to achieve the best outcome for her clients.


Fiona has over 13 years’ PQE experience and I’m skilled practitioner in all aspects of family law.
