Gail Brooks from Knights Professional Services Ltd

I am a collaboratively trained family lawyer with over 12 years’ experience in all family/matrimonial matters.  I understand that no two clients have the same needs and I ensure that everyone I advise benefits from a sensitive, tailored and client centric service from the point of initial instruction through to conclusion, and sometimes beyond the lifetime of a case.

I am regularly instructed by high net worth individuals who require advice and assistance in all matters arising from the unfortunate breakdown of their relationship; this can include married couples and cohabiting couples.  I have experience in dealing with the distribution of matrimonial assets which are complex by nature, many of which include companies, trusts, property portfolios and international elements.  I also regularly advise cohabiting couples on financial issues arising from separation as well as those who are looking to preserve their assets and secure a nuptial agreement or cohabitation agreement,

In addition to the above, I also represent a number of clients who require support in determining the best arrangements for children following the breakdown of a relationship.

As a member of Resolution and a collaboratively trained family lawyer, my focus is to find the most efficient and beneficial way to resolve matters for clients outside of the courts; this includes working closely with mediators, other collaboratively trained lawyers in round table meetings, and various alternate dispute resolution methods.

I would like to thank you for the time you have spent in achieving in 4 hours, what we never achieved in 4 months. I think it is by far a much better process than solicitors and court.

I honestly feel that we now have a good chance of proceeding in an amicable way that hopefully in time will become a friendship with the children at its core. I do not think we would have achieved this through solicitors, and feel huge gratitude for your patience and gentleness.

It’s so much better to go through this process together in a calm and neutral setting, rather than being defensive at home or seeing a solicitor individually. You’ve been a great adviser on a tricky topic and the meetings were really productive.

Throughout this whole horrible process we have both felt that the system is designed to leave us hating each other and to have had your support in helping us get to this point has meant a great deal, so thank you for your support of us both and for reflecting everything so well.

Thank you for all you have done to make a very sad and painful process somewhat less painful!

Thanks for all your help. We are talking a lot more and generally getting on much better, we even stood next to each other at rugby AND are going to parents’ evening together!

You did more in 4 hours than our lawyers had done in 1 year. For that I am very grateful.
