Neive is currently in her Second Six of pupillage and accepts instructions across Chambers’ specialist areas of Family and Civil law. After completing her Bar qualification, she was a County Court advocate for over a year before joining Becket Chambers as a pupil in October 2023. As a County Court advocate, Neive was instructed in over 100 cases in matters involving property possessions, infant settlements, and commercial debt disputes.

During her First Six she shadowed members in both Family and Civil matters, experiencing the full range of Children Act and Public Law (Care) proceedings, matrimonial finance cases, TOLATA matters, property possessions, and probate and inheritance matters covering wills and trusts.

Before becoming a barrister, Neive worked in Accountancy for 11 years, gaining experience across multiple sectors. Her financial background and advanced analytical skills have led her naturally into all aspects of divorce and matrimonial finance work, and Schedule 1 applications. She has experience in applications to enforce financial orders and welcomes work in this area.

As she continues to build her practice, Neive represents clients in small claims and fast-track claims and particularly welcomes instructions in the following Civil matters:

  • Property possession
  • Assessing merits and valuing repairs in property possessions
  • Commercial debt

Neive is developing a broad Family Law base. She understands the particular impact that barristers have in family matters – dealing not only with the practical, legal aspects of a situation, but also acting as an advocate, and providing essential support for people dealing with a separation, or challenging domestic circumstances. She provides robust support to her clients. Neive fully appreciates the emotional impact of the support she provides for someone facing a difficult divorce. She places great value on helping a client experiencing domestic abuse who needs to protect themselves and their children. This empathetic approach is at the heart of her practice.
