Career Highlights

  • Represented a wife in a complex matrimonial finance matter in which the husband owned a large portfolio of buy to let properties with added complications such as options to purchase being granted to property developers.
  • Represented a father who suspected that his child was suffering from neglect whilst with his mother. Successfully obtained an order for the child to live with the father following his concerns being found to be true by the court. This case was further complicated by the mother making serious allegations against the father which the court found to be false, in order to distract from her own wrongdoing.
  • Successfully obtained permission for a mother to permanently relocate to Australia with her child. This case needed to be dealt with urgently because the father had initially consented to the relocation but had subsequently withdrawn his consent a couple of months before the mother and child were due to leave.
  • Represented a client against whom a Non-Molestation Order had wrongfully been made. Not only was the Non-Molestation Order discharged but a costs order was also obtained which meant that the client had their legal costs paid in full the other party, which is rare in family proceedings.
