Karen is a Senior Lawyer in the Family and Divorce department.
She was one of the two founding partners of IBB solicitors. She created, built and led the Family Law department of that firm, establishing a formidable personal reputation as a leading practitioner before deciding to return to her family roots and set up her own practice in North Wales.
Having over 30 years’ Family Law experience, Karen’s specific areas of expertise are dealing with matrimonial and financial matters for high net worth clients. In recent years she has represented clients where the assets have ranged from £8 million to in excess of £35 million. In the last year she has concluded a case where the assets were in excess of £100m including international financial elements. She also has a niche specialism in complex farming cases and cases involving Trusts.
Despite having been based in North Wales over the last 10 years Karen has continued to attract, and act on, high value complex cases from all over the country. She travels extensively and is a regular visitor to London and the Home Counties, seeing clients and attending court.
Put simply, Karen is one of the country’s top Matrimonial lawyers. She believes wholeheartedly in a non-confrontational approach to family matters wherever possible but can also adopt an extremely firm and robust approach in striving to reach the very best outcome for every client, every time.
