Niki specialises exclusively in family work, almost entirely financial remedies. Her practice generally covers high asset and income cases, and matters that contain complex legal or factual issues, often with an international dimension.

She also ‘sits’ as a private judge conducting private FDRs.

She has developed significant experience and expertise in negotiating and drafting pre-nuptial agreements.

She also has experience of cases concerning issues as to the validity of marriage and divorce, especially where there is an international element.

Her preparation is meticulous with great attention to detail, but she is also able to provide sound commercial and pragmatic solutions. She is regarded as having excellent judgment and clients feel instantly comfortable and confident with her.

Most of her work reaches resolution by settlement following negotiation but in court she is highly persuasive and can be tenacious when necessary.
