"Canny, calm, knowledgeable and realistic"
“The person you want in your corner”
Helen has practised exclusively in family law for more than 15 years and is a conscientious and skilful lawyer, who has worked on many difficult and demanding cases. Her knowledge and experience has been acquired in some of the most highly-regarded family law departments in London and she is well-versed in dealing with international and unusually complex cases.
Helen’s wide-ranging experience in both financial and children matters has led to her involvement in many sensitive and complicated cases, earning her a reputation as one of the talents of her generation. In 2020, Legal 500 identified her as a New Generation Partner, recognising her outstanding ability.
She is known for providing great support to her clients through the many challenges they face when dealing with relationship breakdown. Before joining the firm as a partner in 2017, Helen spent 10 years in the family law departments of Mishcon de Reya LLP and Sears Tooth. She studied History of Art with History at UCL and then qualified, first at the Bar (Inner Temple) in 2004 and then as a solicitor in 2007. She is a member of Resolution.
Every year Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners compile independent recommendations based on client and peer reviews for all practising lawyers. These are some of Helen's reviews, and testimonials from other legal professionals.
