Associate – Family & Divorce
Maisie qualified in 2019 and currently works alongside Liz Francis, assisting clients with all matters flowing from divorce and separation, including financial division and arrangements for children.
She is a career-changer, having previously worked in the pharmaceutical industry where she was responsible for the development and negotiation of clinical trial agreements and site budgets. It was in this role that Maisie honed her keen eye for detail which she utilises to great effect in the Family Department and her forensic approach to mastering the financial complexities of a case have been of particular benefit to clients.
Maisie has experience in all elements of family cases, including the tax implications on divorce/separation, complex financial settlements, Trusts of Land, Leave to Remove applications, intervenor issues and complex business interests. She is particularly adept at understanding where a likely settlement will be and, unsurprisingly, is looking to focus on finances in the future.
Maisie’s approach is, wherever possible, to resolve disputes in a sensible, constructive and, importantly, compassionate way in order to achieve the best possible outcome for her clients.
She is a graduate of the University of Surrey with an upper second class LLB Law degree, and completed her LPC at the University of Law, London Bloomsbury with Distinction.
Outside of work, Maisie enjoys listening to music, cooking, and exploring the city.
