Fiona specialises in all aspects of family law. Her practice includes advising married and unmarried clients in relation to their divorce or separation, helping them resolve issues relating to their children, finances and property rights. She advises a broad range of clients from all walks of life.

The majority of Fiona’s cases include an international element and her financial work ranges from cases with modest assets to those with complex and multimillion pound assets.  She frequently advises on pre/post nuptial agreements, cohabitation contracts and separation agreements. 

Fiona has extensive experience in the resolution of issues concerning children and is routinely recommended for her child focused and empathetic approach to children law matters. 

This includes advising on child arrangement orders, specific issue orders concerning a child’s health or education, and domestic and international relocation.

Fiona’s overarching aim is to provide clients with pragmatic advice as to the options available to them, and she believes in resolving any disputes constructively, cost-effectively and, when possible, out of court.  Should court proceedings prove necessary, Fiona is highly experienced in guiding clients though the litigation process.

Fiona recognises that people often seek family law advice in times of stress and difficulty and hopes to provide clients with a clear path forward and a sense of optimism about their future.
