Mediation and collaborative law for complex family cases

No-fault divorce comes into effect in England and Wales from April 2022, and, as an experienced collaborative lawyer, Lorraine has long been an advocate of ensuring that family law matters are resolved in constructive, non-confrontational methods whenever possible.

Lorraine has acted for clients in numerous complex cases including child law actions involving the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction and in high-profile cases involving dissipation of assets and financial misconduct.

Her approach is always to put her clients at the heart of her work, but also to recognise the emotional impact of divorce and separation on the wider family. Lorraine understands that each client’s needs are unique and pressing, and she provides a bespoke approach to each case.
