Jackie is a Partner in the Family team.
She is a Chartered Legal Executive with CILEX (Fellow). Supporting clients on the financial consequences of divorce and separation; protecting wealth through pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements; negotiating financial settlements; resolving the complexities of the children's living arrangements; including parental responsibility and the implications of the Children Act; working across the UK and internationally.
Committed to minimising the emotional challenges by building bridges between former partners to achieve a cost-effective, amicable solution away from the courts where possible, particularly where this can benefit the couple's finances and the wellbeing of their children.
Recent examples of how Jackie has supported clients include:
- establishing that a husband had misled the court by deliberately undervaluing his business interests enabling her to achieve an improved settlement for the wife;
- winning a clean break divorce for an entrepreneur with a developing business which will prevent the former spouse from claiming any future wealth should the value of the business increase in the future; and
- ring-fencing pre-marital assets worth several million pounds through a pre-nuptial agreement in order to protect them as far as possible from any future settlement in the event of a separation.
