The financial matters she is instructed on often involve business interests and complex asset structures, and many of her clients have a connection to South Africa.
Many of her cases involve complex children issues, often where Parental Alienation is alleged.
She has spoken as an expert on Woman’s Hour on Radio 4, Talk Radio and on Channel 5 news.
