1.6 million women experienced domestic abuse last year, and self-isolation has the potential to aggravate pre-existing abusive behaviours by perpetrators. While in lockdown or self-isolation, women and children are likely to be spending concentrated periods of time with perpetrators, potentially escalating the threat of domestic abuse and further restricting their freedom.
Refuge believes that no-one should have to live in fear of violence and abuse. On any given day Refuge supports more than 6,000 clients, helping them rebuild their lives and overcome many different forms of violence and abuse; for example domestic violence, sexual violence, so-called ‘honour’-based violence, human trafficking and modern slavery, and female genital mutilation.

Andrew has significant experience of trust-related matters (both offshore and onshore) and is one of the go-to barristers for ‘big money’ divorce cases involving trust or company related issues. He was first instructed in the seminal case of Charman and has since acted in many of the leading cases in this area. Andrew acts for divorcing parties, trustees, companies and other third parties, whether on his own or as part of a team of advisers on the highest value and most important matrimonial cases. The 2023 edition of Chambers & Partners says that Andrew is "a real team player, he is exceptionally pleasant and really smart. He cuts through issues really quickly and is a brilliant leader", “whose advocacy is excellent” and “Andrew is a proactive silk who maintains an excellent grip throughout his cases. In court he’s very calm and measured even in the fraught context of an acrimonious divorce hearing”.
I am an insolvency practitioner with over 18 years’ experience of dealing with complex, contentious assignments; with an emphasis on fraud investigation, identification of assets, tracing exercises, enforcement of judgments and recovery of assets for those who have suffered financial loss or have a claim against another party.
I focus on assisting beneficiaries, trustees and representatives in matrimonial, family, trust and probate disputes. I work to find strategies that ensure the most appropriate action is taken in order to achieve maximum recovery. I use the Insolvency Act, along with other civil legislation, such as the use of liquidations, bankruptcies and court appointed receiverships, as a tool to assist with investigation, asset tracing and recovery processes.
