Emma Bates



I am a Family Law Solicitor providing advice on all aspects of family life following the breakdown of a relationship. I provide advice in relation to divorce, financial settlements and the arrangements for the children.

I can also provide advice to cohabiting couples who are unsure of their rights.

I advise clients at all levels, however, I have particular expertise assisting on cases where the finances are complicated and high value.

I work very closely with Ros Bever and Nathaniel Groarke, especially on high net worth finances, matters with an international element and complex children matters.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I pursued a career in law because I wanted to help people during difficult periods of their life. I also find the complex problem solving element of family law very interesting. Every case and every client is different with different goals and motivations.

When training as a family law solicitor I knew that it was the area for me. Clients are often struggling to come to terms with the breakdown of a relationship and the impact that it will have on their life. They are then faced with potentially complex litigation and Court rules, this can be a very overwhelming experience and I want to help clients through such a difficult time.
