Harcourt Chambers (Chambers of Nick Goodwin QC)

Position

Jane’s practice is divided between financial remedy, schedule 1 and private law children work.  Jane returned to the Bar after a career break in 2010.  She is recommended in the leading directories for family work.  In 2015 she was appointed to sit as a Deputy District Judge (Civil/Family) in the South East.

Jane represents clients from all walks of life, from those with modest assets to high net worth individuals.  She has particular expertise in representing vulnerable clients, both in financial remedy and schedule 1 proceedings and in private law children matters, including relocation (both internal and external).

Reported Cases

Birch v Birch [2017] UKSC 53 – successful appeal on behalf of wife seeking to discharge an undertaking in a final consent order.  Court held, by a majority of 4 to 1, that wife could apply under s.31 to vary order and under inherent jurisdiction to discharge undertaking.

Re G Children [2014] EWCA Civ 336 – successful appeal on behalf of biological mother who donated eggs to her partner who was the birth mother.  Donation predated HFEA 2008 so biological mother did not automatically have PR.  Case remitted to circuit judge and PR awarded. 

R v R [2013] EWHC 4244 (Fam) – case before the President concerning the duties of shadow directors and the grant of restraint of trade orders under the inherent jurisdiction of the court.
