Georgina practises in all areas of family law. She accepts instructions in matrimonial finance and cohabitation disputes, children (public and private) and applications for injunctive relief under the Family Law Act 1996. Before qualifying as a barrister, she gained valuable experience working in the Family Department of Stewarts Law LLP, where she assisted in high value financial disputes and complex cases involving children.

Georgina is building a strong matrimonial finance practice. She is instructed in complicated cases involving family companies as well as lower value cases in which a creative solution is required to resolve difficult issues arising from limited resources.  She recently acted as junior counsel in the High Court. She has valuable experience of complex issues such as the impact of a party’s bankruptcy on the matrimonial finances, having assisted on the case of Arif v Anwar & Anor [2013] EWHC 624 (Fam).

 
In relation to disputes involving children, Georgina frequently acts for local authorities, children’s guardians and parents and has considerable experience in acting for clients where mental health and substance misuse are central issues.  Her practice also encompasses private law disputes between parents, including cases where contact has become intractable and where sexual abuse of children has been alleged.

 
Georgina is developing a busy mixed family practice both in London and throughout the country. She frequently appears in both the High Court and the County Court.
