Ren Behan

Solicitor, Family Law and Divorce


Ren is a Family Law Solicitor based in our London office. She can advise on all areas of private Family Law, including:

  • Divorce and separation;
  • Financial negotiations;
  • Consent orders;
  • The provision of child maintenance and breaches or enforcement;
  • Child arrangements, change of name and relocation issues.

Ren’s approach to resolving cases is to listen carefully to her client’s needs and objectives, proposing constructive ways of solving disputes effectively and efficiently. Ren has successfully steered cases away from Court through negotiation but is also able to draw upon her experience of litigation if needed.

Ren qualified into Criminal Law in 2005 and was a Crown Prosecutor before taking a career break and subsequently re-qualifying in Family Law. She now has over two years’ experience in Family Law matters, having previously worked in for a Legal 500 firm specialising in this area of law.

In the past, Ren has assisted on cases involving high net value assets, overseas jurisdictions and complex business structures – including trusts and pension transfers.

Ren has Polish heritage and is happy to assist our Polish-speaking Family Law clients.

Prior to becoming a Solicitor, Ren graduated from UCL with a 2:1 in Contemporary European Studies. She then completed the Graduate Diploma in Law at the University of Westminster and the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in London.

Ren has also attained a Certificate in Family Law and Practice from BPP in London.
