I have been advising family law clients for over 30 years. I am committed to helping my clients settle their family disputes in a sensible and constructive manner and within the right legal process for them. I provide them with the support, information and tools they require in order to make informed decisions about the financial and parenting issues which arise upon the breakdown of their relationship and which are workable and meet their needs and the needs of their children after separation or divorce.
Camilla is highly regarded by her peers for her 30 years' experience advising on all aspects of family law. Her particular expertise lies in advising mid to high-net-worth individuals on their financial settlements following separation and divorce and her cases have involved high earners, professionals, entrepreneurs, private companies, large pensions, inherited wealth and family trusts.
She acts for both men and women and for both the homemaker and the earning spouse. As a parent of teenage children, Camilla understands the issues and challenges of family life and is well placed to provide those of her clients with children the support they need, whether they are the homemaker, the working parent or in a dual working family. In addition, her particular interest in financial planning and pensions is invaluable for those clients who must grapple with these complex issues, particularly those approaching or in retirement.
Camilla has considerable experience advising on pre and post-nuptial agreements, often with an international element and has advised on numerous second marriage nuptial agreements and on first marriage agreements where the wealth has been provided by a parent or other relation.
She is excellent; what she does not know is not worth knowing, she has been doing this for years and she has a lot of experience in all range of matters in different jurisdictions and factual matrices.
