Zoe advises on a broad range of family matters including divorce and the associated financial matters, appropriate arrangements for children, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements as well as advising unmarried couples at all stages of their relationships.
Zoe frequently deals complex financial arrangements, including sizable pension arrangements and complex trust or business structures. She also has experience of dealing with urgent matters and is adept at dealing with the unique pressures of this type of work, particularly in cases where time is of the essence as competing claims could also be made in other countries.

She provides clear and concise advice to her clients on all aspects of their matters, including the strengths and weaknesses of their positions, so that they are fully aware of their position and all possible options from the outset.
A committed member of Resolution, Zoe adopts a focused but amicable approach. She is open to all the different process options to ensure that matters are resolved in the most suitable way for her clients’ individual needs.
