Teresa Davidson



I lead the family team in Leeds and advise clients on how to protect family assets through cohabitation agreements and pre-nuptial agreements.

My practice mainly involves advising clients who need assistance in resolving financial issues following a relationship breakdown.

I also regularly work with clients to resolve issues relating to the care of their children and have handled complex disputes such as where families with children are moving to other countries.

What inspired you to get into law?

I started young – as a child I watched Crown Court avidly, which shows my age too.

On a serious note, I feel strongly that anyone entering into a legal agreement or dispute should have equality of arms, which often means having as good a lawyer as the other party. It is a matter of fairness and justice for me.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

I most enjoy seeing a client who starts in a very dark place at a very sad and difficult time of their life and seeing them come through that and look to the future. I also constantly fascinated at the range of human experience and life stories that come out of our work.

What do you do away from the office?

I am a keen cyclist and I try to get away skiing once a year. When I am being less active I enjoy browsing the art and shops in my favourite city, Florence.


I have appeared in The Times and The Telegraph as well as the legal publication Solicitors Journal.

Today’s ruling now allows his ex-wife to press on with her claims ‘for an appropriate and fair settlement'."
