Daisy advises on all aspects of relationship breakdown and wealth protection, including financial claims on divorce, financial claims between unmarried couples and disputes relating to children including custody, relocation and abduction. 

Clients value Daisy’s technical expertise and her ability to simplify complex and challenging situations. She gives pragmatic advice, acting with sensitivity and discretion. Clients have consistently praised her empathetic approach.

Daisy has extensive experience of high-level matrimonial finance litigation, frequently involving other jurisdictions but she is always committed to achieving commercial solutions outside of court where appropriate. Daisy also has experience of high-level children disputes, but her priority is always to find a child-focussed solution. Daisy also advises on pre- and post-nuptial agreements which she handles with care and sensitivity.

Daisy acts for high profile individuals in the entertainment industry and sporting world for whom discretion is key. She also acts for landowners, entrepreneurs, financiers, professionals and parents. Given the complexity of her cases, Daisy often works closely with specialists across the firm’s corporate, reputation management, property and tax teams as and when her clients need her to.

In 2018, Daisy was seconded at a boutique matrimonial law firm in New York. She therefore has particular experience of US/UK cases.

Above all, Daisy recognises the importance of winning the trust of her clients and is completely committed to protecting their interests.


“I am quite aware that the ink has not dried yet, nor the settlement complete, however.... A substantive day for me for which I am more than grateful. Thank you for taking my case, for treating me so patiently, sensitively, kindly taking me by the hand through the morass of legal procedure…” (Client)

“Thanks so much Daisy. I hope I personally don’t have reason to instruct you again but I’d like to thank you so much for your fine counsel. I certainly felt very well looked after and you took a sensible and thorough approach to everything.” (Client)

“Thank you again for your help and the kindness and empathy that you showed throughout what was a very difficult and sad period of my life. I really appreciate you.” (Client)

“Just a note to say thank you for an absolutely super piece of work on the statement. The case may be turning a corner - if it is you will have played a really important part in that - So thanks a million and really well done.” (Top ranked Children Law QC)
