One of Hannah’s key strengths lies in her negotiation skills and that, coupled with an eye for detail, renders her a strong choice for matrimonial finance matters. She provides settlement advice pre issue and beyond and takes instructions in all hearings including FDAs, FDRs, and contested final hearings. She is approachable with clients and is happy to speak to solicitors on an informal basis throughout the duration of a case.
Hannah regularly receives instructions to advise in respect of the validity of separation agreements, the merits of appealing final orders and the merits of applications to set aside final orders. She has considerable experience in both advising on and representing at MPS and LSPO application hearings.
Her written advocacy skills have been praised for their ability to be both concise yet thorough and ultimately highly persuasive.
