Holly’s busy court and advisory practice has become well-established since she joined Chambers in 2009, and now specialises in family finance and property matters. Holly has considerable experience in dealing with issues arising from the breakdown of family relationships, including finances, children, trusts of land and housing. She frequently deals with financial cases involving companies, foreign assets and pensions.
Holly regularly deals with cases involving children, including removal from the jurisdiction, complex domestic violence cases and intractable hostility. She is building a reputation for dealing with these highly emotional matters and the people involved with sensitivity and tact, and her ability to explain complex legal issues to people unfamiliar with legal terms, and in stressful predicaments, is highly valued.
She is trained to deal with family matters on a collaborative basis, using round-table meetings to assist clients to reach their own solution to financial or children issues.
Holly is especially interested in cases involving human rights and access to justice, and has often used her spare time helping the local community through volunteering as a legal adviser for the Kent Law Clinic and Citizens Advice Bureau.
Holly’s practice also deals with housing law, property disputes, and personal injury claims.
