Career Highlights

  • Lisa acted for the mother in the MB vs. KB case, in which a court clarified that a parent (in this case the father) never gets a ‘clean break’ from their child. The High Court Judge stated that the flesh-and-blood link means the wider family must maintain a measure of responsibility for the child.
  • Many years ago, Lisa acted on a case very similar to 2015’s landmark Vince vs. Wyatt where she obtained a financial settlement for a wife ten years after Decree Absolute, proving that Decree Absolute is not a clean break.
  • Lisa won a case for a mother who had a shared care arrangement in place and wanted to emigrate to Australia with the child.
  • Lisa recently acted for a successful media industry businessman who wished to keep his personal affairs out of court. She negotiated a financial divorce settlement with his wife and the case was concluded without either setting foot in court. The client kept his family intact and he and his wife agreed a shared care arrangement untainted by the financial negotiations.
