Jo is the Head of Family Law at Forsters and specialises in dealing with issues which arise on relationship breakdown, including the financial consequences of divorce or separation; and resolving arrangements for children, including cases involving relocation with children. She also has expertise in advising on pre-nuptial agreements and acting in cases involving unmarried couples.
Although Jo has extensive experience of taking cases to court where required, she is known for her conciliatory, pragmatic approach and desire to settle cases where possible. She is a trained mediator and collaborative lawyer and one of only a handful of lawyers in London qualified to consult with children in mediation. Mediation is a significant part of Jo's practice and she has mediated both married and unmarried couples, often with complex/high value assets or difficult issues such as one parent wishing to relocate overseas with children.
