Approach

Joanne deals with divorce, finances, (especially high-net worth), children and all aspects of separation.  Her sympathetic approach to clients is matched by her ability to negotiate but also be a tough opponent; Joanne is someone you want on your side.  Joanne very much promotes conciliatory negotiations without the necessity for court wherever possible and gives clients sensible advice about the options available to them with practical cost information, both at the beginning and throughout the proceedings.

Joanne represents a number of high net worth clients that are dealing with sensitive situations including the breakdown of marriage. This includes making decisions on how to split businesses, pensions and savings.  Joanne works to ensure any solution allows both parties to move on in a way that benefits their business and future.
