What can Sue do for you?

Sue is an experienced and specialist family lawyer and mediator. She enables clients to resolve the financial and practical implications of separation and divorce as painlessly as possible, whether through advice or mediation. She helps married and unmarried clients with wealth protection 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 move forward in the way that is most appropriate for their own individual circumstances. This ranges from expert legal advice in the background to collaborative law, solicitor negotiation or litigation.

As a family mediator, Sue helps clients achieve their own outcomes by working together.

The more complex the case, the more creative the solution needs to be. Sue has years of experience in cases involving property disputes, pensions, businesses, trusts or disputes over 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 acknowledged in Chambers UK for being "everything a matrimonial lawyer should be" and "able to take the heat out of a hugely distressing situation and provide a very personal, responsive service grounded on knowledgeable, sensitive and jargon-free advice". 

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.
