Harriet's Recent Projects

  • Acting for the husband in the case of Iqbal v Iqbal [2017] EWCA Civ 19 concerning the husband's appeal against six orders made during the course of long-running divorce proceedings. All of the orders, which had been made in the context of financial remedy proceedings spanning over six years, were successfully overturned by the Court of Appeal in favour of the husband. 
  • Acting for the wife in the case of AB v CB [2014] EWHC 2998 (Fam) concerning the wife's claim to property held in trust by the husband's family.
  • Acting for a high net worth wife in divorce and financial remedy proceedings against a husband who was a director and shareholder of an international publicly-listed company. The case involved complex issues regarding the parties' pensions in light of recent changes imposed by HMRC. Other assets included various properties situated in England and overseas and substantial shareholdings in other companies held by both parties.
  • Acting for the mother in abduction proceedings resulting in her successful relocation from South East Asia to England.
  • Representing the husband of a business woman who owned a well known private company in England.

  • Acting for a high net worth entrepreneurial husband in drafting and negotiating the terms of a pre-nuptial agreement involving substantial business and property interests.
