Head of Family

Helen’s expertise

Helen is a family practitioner with considerable experience in advising on divorce and financial settlements (with a particular emphasis on high value cases involving shareholdings and business interests; family trusts and pensions). 

Helen’s other main area of expertise is wealth protection advice including prenups often where assets are based out of the country, postnups, civil partnership and relationship agreements.  The aim in such arrangements is to protect and safeguard business assets, inherited assets and to ensure family wealth can pass to future generations.

About Helen

Helen heads up our Family team. She has advised in many divorce cases involving business owners where questions of valuation, liquidity and minority discount issues arise.  Her aim is to achieve a balanced and practical solution to such cases taking into account the fact that the business is often the source of a continuing income stream as well as being a capital asset. 

Helen is a strategist and enjoys ensuring resolutions can be found in tough circumstances. 

Helen was the first family solicitor to qualify as an Arbitrator in Liverpool which means she can act as a private family “Judge” thus completing the team’s offering of a full suite of alternative dispute resolution methods.

Helen is a member of Resolution and was formerly the chair of the Liverpool Law Society Family Business Sub Committee. Helen is also a fully trained Collaborative Family Lawyer and is committed to resolving family disputes, if at all possible, in the most amicable and efficient manner.

Helen qualified in 1993 and joined us as a Partner in 2001.
