Sabrina is a founder and Joint Managing Partner of Allard Bailey Family Law.  She has broad experience of all aspects of family law, including divorce and separation with business interests, international assets, sizable pensions and high-net-worth financial settlements.

Sabrina has a special interest in matters involving children such as complex care arrangements, international relocation, adoption and surrogacy.  She enjoys helping parents resolve disputes and always encourages a child-first approach.  This is shown in her contribution to the book ‘101 Questions Answered About Separating With Children’. 

As an advocate of collaboration over litigation, Sabrina helps people entering relationships with children, as well as those with existing assets such a properties, businesses and pensions, to protect their futures with Pre-Nuptial Agreements and Living Together Agreements (also known as Cohabitation Agreements). 

Due to her skilled handling of complex family law issues, Sabrina often advises on matters where there are much larger firms on the other side. With an empathetic but firm approach, she always strives to reach a conclusion for her clients in a cost effective and timely way. 

Some notable cases include

  • Obtaining 80% of marital assets for a wife in contested Financial Remedy Proceedings.
  • Negotiating a complex Pre-Nuptial Agreement for a high-profile client with extensive assets in multiple jurisdictions.
  • Securing an Adoption Order for a same-sex couple in contested proceedings.
  • Gaining an order allowing a mother to relocate to New Zealand with her children.
  • Successfully challenging false allegations made against a father in Children Act Proceedings, which had led to him having no contact with his child, and securing a shared care arrangement.
