HCR Law Events

A bit about me

I specialise in helping families across borders and those with complex asset structures, ranging from £3 million to £30 million. Whether I’m resolving an issue to do with the kids or finances, I’m uniquely placed to help in these potentially difficult cases – I’ve worked with big businesses like Microsoft and Disney, and I know what it’s like to live and work offshore.

I’m a member of the England and Wales Law Society and Resolution, who are dedicated to resolving family disputes constructively. Whatever the case, I give clear, practical advice, rather than just focusing on the law. I do my best to find a fair outcome for the entire family, but I’m not afraid to take a firm stance where necessary.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing golf, drawing and origami.

Never let your spouse give up work.

While I can advise you of your options, you ultimately have to make a decision based on what you feel is right for you and your family.

How long will it take?

It depends on the case, but as a general rule, most court proceedings take a minimum of 4–6 months to resolve. If it’s highly contentious and has to progress to a Final Hearing, the average is 6–12 months.

How much it will cost?

This depends on the process and nature of your dispute, but we take great care to estimate costs and work out a plan to make sure you’re in financial control of your case.

Do the reasons for a divorce affect how the finances are divided?

No, this won’t have an effect on any finance decisions unless the behaviour relied upon is exceptionally bad.
