She has a strong reputation in the resolution of relationship breakdown from all types of families, including same-sex relationships, unmarried couples and inter-family relations where expertise in Trusts and Property Law is required.
Fiona has considerable experience in complex high profile and high net worth divorce cases but works with clients with varied financial backgrounds and from all walks of life. She is skilled in drafting and negotiating Prenup and Postnuptial agreements.
Fiona is committed to helping families separate constructively, commercially and amicably where possible but has a proven track record as a Litigator when circumstances dictate, which can include emergency Court applications such as Injunctions.
Fiona has an excellent rapport with expert Counsel and works hard to ensure that the right team is assembled for each individual case. Fiona adopts a sensitive approach to her clients, is proactive to meet their objectives and is cost conscious.
Above all, Fiona ensures that the protection of the children of the family is put at the forefront of settlement discussions and the minds of the parties when considering the future.
Fiona obtained her Law degree from University of Manchester, and qualified as a Solicitor in March 2008. She joined Simpson Millar in 2017 from a top Legal 500 firm in the South-East UK.
