Pump Court Chambers (Chambers of Oba Nsugbe QC)

Position

Jennifer is a specialist family law practitioner. She has wide experience of complex children cases, and has developed a thriving practice in the area of family finance. She regularly represents high net worth clients in cases involving substantial family businesses and inherited wealth, foreign assets and jurisdictional issues, nuptial agreements, substantial pensions, and complex trusts. She has appeared in high-profile reported cases, most notably in Veluppillai v Veluppillai & Ors. [2015] EWHC 3095 (Fam)(High Court), in which the High Court made the unusual decision to publish the judgment in full in order to expose the ‘abysmal’ behaviour of the husband. She also recently appeared in LFL v LSL (McKenzie Friends and Breach of Court Orders) [2017] EWFC B62, involving an obstructive McKenzie Friend and gross misconduct on the part of a husband. Over the years, as a corollary of her family practice, Jennifer has developed an interest in the Court of Protection, and in surrogacy and 'alternative' families, having acted for commissioning parents in HFEA cases. Jennifer appears at all levels of court, and regularly appears in arbitrations and mediations.

Career

Jennifer undertook her pupillage at Pump Court Chambers and initially undertook a wide range of family work. She now specialises almost exclusively in family law, with a particular emphasis on family finance and complex children work. She is a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (ACIArb). Jennifer is regularly invited to give seminars on family law and has written articles for the New Law Journal and Westlaw Insight. Jennifer is an active member of Chambers, and is part of the Marketing Committee, and the Pupillage & Tenancy Committee. She also leads the Court of Protection Team.
