3PB Direct

I am also developing a keen interest in probate and TOLATA work.

As a native Russian speaker, I can also assist clients where language and translation issues arise for and with Russian nationals.

Legal Expertise

I accept instructions in all areas of divorce and family finance in marital or couple break-ups, including cases involving cohabitation  and TOLATA claims. My recent family finance work includes:

  •  Represented husband successfully arguing to add back sums of money dissipated post-separation
  •  Represented wife at financial settlement securing favourable split of family home, with no responsibility for husband’s debts
  •  Represented husband successfully in his financial settlement
  •  Represented the husband to get a time extension for disclosure to determine the beneficial interest in the property
  •  Advised on pre-nuptial agreements for a same-sex couple
  •  Advised wife pro bono on the prospects of an application for maintenance

I undertake a wide range of work and have been instructed by mothers, fathers, grandparents and NYAS in applications for child arrangement orders, prohibited steps orders and specific issue orders. I will act for you at all stages of proceedings and frequently my cases involve sensitive elements such as intractable hostility, domestic and sexual abuse (including allegations of sexual abuse towards the child), and witness protection. She is also keen to undertake cases involving alternative family arrangements and surrogacy.

Recent cases have included:

  • Successfully represented a mother in resisting an application by the father for contact where the 12yo child’s wishes and feelings were strongly against any direct contact exhibited through school non-attendance, self-harm and suicidal thoughts
  • Represented the grandmother of children at a directions hearing in the context of the children’s move into witness protection meaning she would be denied all contact
  • Successfully adjourned final hearing and resisted applications for amendments to interim child arrangements
  • Successfully representing a mother in her application for the discharge of a Special Guardianship Order
  • Resolved disputes about contact with children, and shared property assets
  • Successfully represented clients in applications for non-molestation and occupation orders.

I have worked on two secondments with local authorities advising on a large number of individual cases and understand Court of Protection casework and have frequently provided representation in the Court, with a particular emphasis on deprivation of liberty, and where capacity or lasting power of attorney issues are at stake.

I help SME businesses and private clients in property law disputes at hearings, conferences and reviews as well as at trials and in drafting necessary documents for issuing and defending claims. I do work in all areas of property law including:

  • Boundary disputes and claims for trespass and nuisance;
  • Disputes over covenants, easements and rights of way;
  • Landlord and tenant disputes, including possession hearings and breaches of covenant and housing disrepair;
  • Forfeiture and possession of commercial premises, including dilapidations and leasehold renewal proceedings;
  • Agricultural tenancies and assured agricultural occupancies;
  • Service charge disputes;
  • Applications under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act (TOLATA) 1996;
  • Proceedings relating to social housing, mobile homes and licensed premises;
