What can Sue do for you?

Sue is both a specialist family lawyer and an accredited mediator. She enables clients to resolve the financial and practical implications of separation and divorce as painlessly as possible, whether through advice or mediation.

Sue also helps married and unmarried clients protect wealth through cohabitation and nuptial agreements.

Sue works with national and international clients, including business owners and professionals. 

Supporting your ambitions

As a solicitor, Sue helps clients resolve disputes with clear and practical advice. Sue approaches every case sensitively and adopts the best possible approach for the individual client. This may be expert legal advice in the background, collaborative law or adopting a more robust approach and litigation when needed.

The more complex the case, the more creative the solution needs to be.

Sue has years of experience in high value and complex cases involving property disputes, pensions, businesses, trusts or child arrangements, all of which she can draw upon to help clients to find the best solution in every case. 

What do others say?

Sue is recommended in Chambers UK and acknowledged for being " an excellent lawyer who handled my case speedily and expertly". 

"Sue Brookes is an excellent solicitor. I found Sue does not leave anything out and goes through things with a fine-toothed comb. I am very impressed with her ways and work. I would certainly recommend her services to others." Legal 500

A recent client "couldn't recommend her highly enough". Sue is also named in Citywealth's Future Leaders Top 100 2019

What else should you know?

Sue works increasingly with unmarried families. She is on a personal crusade to debunk the widely held belief in the "common law marriage" because of how vulnerable believing in the myth can leave people in practice. Sue was instrumental in creating the award winning, the first dedicated resource for couples that live together.
