I am dedicated to practicing and promoting the ethos of Resolution.


I specialise principally in divorce and the dissolution of civil partnership and the division and sharing of high-value assets. These regularly involve successful family businesses, property and pension portfolios and City bonus structures.

I represent clients in all aspects of family law, including applications for Child Arrangements Orders, Special Guardianship Orders and in drafting nuptial agreements. My work also encompasses unmarried separations and the appropriate division of property.

I am a Resolution accredited specialist in complex financial remedies and Children Act cases.


My focus is on supporting clients by providing an empathetic and constructive alliance.

Training & employment

I studied at the University of Reading and qualified as a barrister in 2002. I worked for a leading City of London firm before converting to become a solicitor in 2007. I have specialised in family law throughout my career and practised in Essex since 2006 becoming a Partner in 2017.

I am Chair of Resolution Essex and a School Governor.

Notable cases

I have acted in high net worth divorces which have included implications under DOTAS (Disclosure of Tax Avoidance Schemes) Legislation.

I have extensive experience of Children Act cases involving drug and alcohol abuse by mothers and fathers, domestic violence and non-compliance with Court Orders.

I have represented grandparents in obtaining Special Guardianship Orders in circumstances of parents’ suffering from severe drug and alcohol addiction.

I have also represented clients in resisting and applying for permission to remove children from the jurisdiction to live abroad.

Legal 500

I have been recommended by the Legal 500 since 2016 as ‘practical, realistic and personable’, ‘pragmatic and sensitive’ and ‘excellent, intelligent and thoughtful’.
