My role involves helping clients with all matters relating to divorce or separation, be it the resolution of their finances or arrangements for their children. My practice is divided between assisting on complex high value cases, often involving complicated business structures and trusts, and advising on cases where the main assets are properties and pensions.
I have a particular interest in the commercial aspects arising out of a separation. This includes the valuation of business assets and commercial properties, as well as the tax implications for and/or their businesses.
I also advise on divorces or separation where the main asset is a significant compensation following a catastrophic injury. I enjoy working with case managers and other solicitors on a multi-disciplinary team basis to achieve the right outcome for clients.

What inspired you to get into law?
I wanted a job that would be intellectually challenging and stimulating. Being a lawyer means you’re always learning something new, no matter what level you are. One of the best parts of working in law is taking a complicated issue and presenting it to clients in a straightforward way which they can understand.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I make a point of asking every client in the first meeting what their objectives are. I keep their objectives in mind during every step of the case. It’s always a joy to look back at the end of the case and know that I helped my client to achieve their objectives, or find a different way forward for a fresh start.
What do you do away from the office?
I am a keen swimmer and to the dismay of some colleagues I have taken to open water swimming in Manchester Ship Canal.
I also enjoy my trips to far flung destinations.
