Within the private law field, she has extensive experience of child arrangement disputes, and is regularly instructed in intractable contact cases, leave to remove applications as well as having significant experience being instructed on behalf of the child in rule 16 cases. Sharon frequently represents high profile clients, often from the sports/entertainment industries with widespread media attention and multi jurisdictional elements including international surrogacy.
