About Hannah

I see my role as a facilitator to help clients navigate what can sometimes be a very difficult and challenging time of their life. I appreciate that everyone and every case is different and therefore I am flexible in my approach to the situation - ensuring that I have sound, considered and pragmatic advice.

Hannah is renowned for her empathetic but practical approach to cases. She is conscious to ensure her clients' needs are met at the same time as managing their expectations.

Hannah is an expert in a broad range of family law issues including relationship breakdown, cohabitation disputes, pre and post-nuptial agreements, domestic violence orders including non-molestation and occupation orders as well as private law children disputes including leave to remove children from this jurisdiction.

Hannah has been a joy to work with - she is so helpful and supportive, with the most wonderful approach.
Chambers UK (2024)

Hannah has a great deal of experience in dealing with cases involving companies and trust arrangements. Many of Hannah’s clients have assets abroad as well as in the UK. Hannah is able to work with other lawyers across different jurisdictions in order to ensure the client has all necessary information to make an informed decision as to how best to resolve their matter.

Hannah has a client focused and pragmatic approach to dealing with her cases. She is committed to delivering an effective and tailored result for each client's case. Hannah is a member of Resolution and is therefore committed to dealing with matters in a conciliatory and non-confrontational manner whenever possible. Hannah, however, is mindful that litigation is sometimes unavoidable and is experienced and unperturbed by dealing with cases in this way.

Hannah Field is a practical lawyer who gives clear advice to clients. She is excellent at exploiting good points in cases, but always advises clients where the pitfalls are in their case.

Hannah has experience of advising individuals from a broad range of backgrounds and adapts her approach in order to meet the individual needs of her client. Her patient and sympathetic approach allows her clients to make informed and practical decisions, supporting them through what can often be a very difficult situation.

She is a trained collaborative lawyer and always considers the options available to her clients for resolving matters including all methods of dispute resolution. She sees herself as a facilitator and part of her client’s team working together to achieve the best outcome possible in each situation. 

There were times when I could have made mistakes if I followed my emotions, however when I listened to Hannah's advice it was always the right thing to do. She had the ability to calm me down and make me see sense.
