Aswini has been specialising in private family law for over 10 years and has a broad range of experience including advising on divorce, financial remedies, private children law, nuptial agreements and injunctions.

She advocates a collaborative approach to help clients achieve fair and dignified out of court agreements wherever possible.  If that is not feasible, she will vigorously represent her clients to give them the best possible chance of achieving a positive outcome.

With a down-to-earth approach, Aswini always provides sensible, straightforward advice.  She regularly advises on cases where there are allegations of domestic abuse and coercive control, which require sensitive but firm handling.  

Her clients include business owners, company directors, accountants, lawyers, bankers, TV Producers, headteachers, doctors, their spouses and partners.

 

Examples of her work include

  • Acting for a wife with young children in a complex and highly contested case involving allegations of domestic violence and requiring expert valuation of high-net-worth assets. Aswini successfully argued that the children should live with the wife and that the husband should provide her with sufficient capital and maintenance.
  • Negotiating an out of court settlement in favour of an unmarried client regarding the beneficial ownership of a high-value property.
  • Obtaining civil protective injunctions on behalf of a wife, who had been subjected to physical and emotional abuse throughout the marriage, to remove the husband from the family home and ensure the safety of her and the children.
  • Representing a successful businessman in financial proceedings on divorce, preserving his business which he had built up over many years and securing his interest in the family home, as well as an investment property.
