Chambers of Nkumbe Ekaney KC and Andrew Norton KC
1GC | Family Law
10 LINCOLN’S INN FIELDS
LONDON
WC2A 3BP
England

Position

Caroline specialises in financial remedy work, advising and representing both husbands and wives, with the intention wherever possible of resolving their disputes. If this cannot be achieved, then she will cross-examine fearlessly at final hearings, having identified the core issues. Her financial work includes Schedule 1 Children Act claims, Inheritance Act disputes and cases for financial provision for unmarried parties.

A significant part of Caroline’s work is sitting at the Central Family Court as a Deputy District Judge, where she is assigned to the Financial Remedies Unit. This involves hearing FDRs, as well as final hearings in financial cases. FDRs require the swift absorption of facts and the ability to indicate concisely to the parties what the likely outcome will be. 

An increasing proportion of Caroline’s work is now mediation/ENE. She accepts instructions from Direct Public Access clients in suitable cases.
