Country

Louise is a partner in our Family Team and a solicitor specialising in all aspects of family law, with a particular emphasis on complex financial matters, including those involving business assets and those with an international element.

She is dual qualified in England and in South Africa. Although she now practices solely in England, she deals with many cases which have a South African connection.  She has  been called upon to assist as an expert witness on English divorce law in the High Court of South Africa.

Parental alienation is a label that is being applied more frequently than ever before in cases that involve high conflict disputes about children. On separation, arrangements will need to be made dealing with who the children will spend time with and when.
