What can Frances do for you?

Frances is a specialist family lawyer in our top ranked family team. She advises clients from all around the UK and overseas on the practical, legal and financial issues arising out of relationship breakdown. She has particular experience in advising business owners, both in negotiating financial settlements on separation/divorce, but also in protecting their businesses at the outset of relationships.

Supporting your ambitions

Frances is a long-standing member of Resolution (sitting on both the local Resolution committee and the national Litigants in Person Working Party) and a trained collaborative lawyer. Her training enables her to offer a holistic and solution focused approach to family law issues, working with clients to achieve a settlement that meets their, and their families', specific needs. 

Frances' understanding of the commercial, tax and legal issues facing business owners meant she was recently able to help a client secure a multi million pound settlement, working with accountants to structure the settlement in a tax efficient, and commercially effective, manner.

What do others say?

One of the leading legal directories, Chambers & Partners, reports a former client of Frances' as saying: "she is solution-orientated. She listens to what I say and acts on it. She is also very understanding."

What else should you know?

Frances is particularly interested in the technical and academic aspects of family law and writes regularly for various professional publications. Outside of work, Frances is a keen Norwich City fan, occasional runner and a (very) amateur musician.
