Hannah is a highly skilled family lawyer who advises on complex disputes relating to divorce, financial matters, cohabitation and domestic abuse. She is particularly experienced in advising on disputes concerning children which include issues with residence, contact arrangements, parental alienation, international custody disputes, international child abduction, adoption and international surrogacy.

Hannah also has extensive experience in negotiating divorce financial settlements, especially those relating to international matters involving businesses, complex pensions and foreign property.

Keystone’s growing family law team now boasts over 20 partners. The team acts for some of the UK’s most high-profile businesspeople, entrepreneurs and those in the public eye.

CEO and founder of Keystone Law, James Knight, said: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Hannah to Keystone. She is a highly regarded professional and her niche of advising on complex disputes involving children will be an asset to our clients and complement our flourishing family offering.”
