Elizabeth specialises in high net worth divorce and co-habitee cases, frequently involving business and partnership assets as well as pension shares which clearly affect pre-existing pension arrangements. Tax is a frequent ingredient, particularly when transferring assets or having to sell assets in order to raise capital.
Elizabeth has increasingly advised on ‘before the event’ documents to include pre-nuptial and co-habitation agreements. The team also advises on private Children Act applications to include financial applications, residence, contact, parental responsibility and specific issue.
Our family team work closely with other professionals to include forensic accountants, financial advisers and banks. This often provides a possibility for referral work as well as a ‘united’ approach when attempting to think creatively in relation to settlement proposals. Elizabeth has developed a collaborative law practice which provides an alternative to the court routes when parties are separating.
Elizabeth is an Accredited Specialist of Resolution as well as a member of the Law Society’s Family Law Panel.
