Juliette is a partner in the Family Team in our London office. She was previously at the niche matrimonial firm Sears Tooth as assistant to Raymond Tooth. As a consequence, she has worked on the largest and most complex divorce cases.
She has practiced exclusively in Family Law for over 20 years. Her specialities are:
- Divorce, particularly the financial side;
- Children, such as where a child is to live, contact with a non-resident parent and a particular interest in relocation cases;
- Financial claims on behalf of children (Schedule 1);
- Same sex dissolutions;
- Prenuptial Agreements;
- Postnuptial Agreements.
The assets in her cases are often substantial and complex. She has acted for individuals from all walks of life including those in the City, entertainment industry and sports world.
Juliette is a Guernsey Advocate and so her cases often involve offshore assets, Trusts, international elements, tracing of assets and tax issues. She also has a dual nationality US/UK and so has interest in cross jurisdictional work.
Juliette is a pragmatic and strategic lawyer who will negotiate a financial settlement if this is right for the client. She is equally confident taking a matter to Court in a robust manner.
Juliette is happy to speak by phone, without charge or obligation, to discuss the issues in a particular case and to explain how she and the Family Team might help. She is empathetic and understands that this is a very difficult, emotional and stressful time.
