Profile

I qualified as a barrister in 1992 and as a family law arbitrator in 2015. I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (MCIArb), the Institute of Family Law Arbitrators, the Family Law Bar Association and Resolution. I specialise in family law cases with a financial element and can also offer Early Neutral Evaluation (“ENE”) to help parties resolve family finance disputes.

About me

I am a barrister in private practice at Fourteen in central London. I specialise in financial claims when family relationships end. Areas of particular expertise include cases involving:

• analysis of business accounts
• company shareholdings and business valuations
• assets held offshore
• hidden wealth and other forms of material non-disclosure
• farms, share options, art collections and other atypical financial resources that demand special consideration
• domestic and overseas enforcement of financial orders, including the tracing of assets.

In addition, I frequently represent clients in the range of family disputes, including: contested divorce and nullity proceedings; issues about the welfare of children under the Children Act 1989; applications for permission to relocate abroad with children; child abduction proceedings; the enforcement here of foreign judgments and orders. I regularly am invited to lecture on financial remedy law topics to family law professionals.

Beyond my experience in family law cases, I also undertake work in employment law and business litigation. Continuing to undertake non-family law cases enables me to bring a breadth of experience many other family practitioners cannot offer.

Where I work and how I charge

I am willing to travel to any suitable venue in England and overseas and to accommodate client’s requirements as regards timing of meetings, including weekends and early morning/evening meetings if necessary, subject to prior commitments. My Chambers are able to offer facilities for meetings in London if required.

My clerks will be happy to discuss and provide estimates of fees, which will depend upon the circumstances of the case. They can be contacted by telephone on 020 7242 0858 or by e-mail at clerks@fourteen.co.uk.
