Judith Fitton.

Partner (Head of Family)

Judith is a Partner and head of the Family team and has over twenty five years of experience. She works mainly in the field of high net worth divorces with a particular skill in the forensic aspect of cases, including at High Court level and is recognised by The Legal 500 UK as being a Leading Individual in this field. She is experienced in investigating complex financial arrangements, including non-disclosure, international assets, intricate company structures, third party disclosure orders and pension schemes. Judith is also the expert in our department in cohabitee matters, disputes between non-married couples as to their property interests and claims on behalf of their children.  She advises and represents clients in respect of claims under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act but is also skilled at achieving settlements in these complicated and often hotly disputed cases without the need for court proceedings.

She has a particular interest in pre and post nuptial agreements and enjoys the negotiations and the creative challenge of drafting contracts which achieve the aim of protecting pre-acquired wealth yet still provide for the needs of both parties in the future.

Judith has been accredited as a Specialist in the fields of Cohabitee Disputes (one of the first lawyers in Surrey to achieve this) and Complex Financial Remedies in high net worth asset cases by Resolution (the national organisation of family lawyers).  Accredited lawyers have to demonstrate a proven record in their specialist areas, provide a portfolio of appropriate cases and also pass an exam.

She is known for her ability to present issues in a clear and straight forward manner to give pragmatic and constructive advice.  She receives many recommendations from satisfied clients and also other lawyers.
