Profile

Sharon Giles LLB (Hons)

Partner

I am an experienced family lawyer and collaborative practitioner, heading up the family law team.

I actively promote, and personally adopt, a conciliatory approach to family law disputes and so encourage my clients to resolve their issues in a calm and constructive way, even at court.

I specialise in complex financial matters often involving business interests, significant pension resources and/or properties and investments owned abroad. I also advise on the various preventative and protective measures that can be put into place to avoid future disputes such as nuptial and co-habitation agreements.

Key skills

I can help you with:

  • all aspects of divorce, dissolution and financial remedy processes, whether addressed round a table or at court
  • legal and financial issues arising for non-married separating couples
  • child arrangements, to include specific issues such as school fees orders, top up orders and family relocations
  • preventative and protective measures, such as nuptial and co-habitation agreements.

Experience highlights

I have:

  • negotiated a significant out of court settlement – in collaboration with the husband’s solicitor, counsel on both parts and trusts experts – for a wife who had signed an Italian agreement on the day of marriage some 20 years prior, which, if upheld, would have reduced her claim to a nominal sum
  • successfully enforced a school fees court order for several children of a family where the husband sought to subsequently renege on arrangements
  • secured a capitalised child maintenance lump sum as part of a divorce settlement package for a wife whose husband had been diagnosed with terminal illness and so achieved financial security for their 2 young children for the duration of their childhood.
  • "May I say a huge thank you for all you have done for me on this case. The people of Cheltenham will be very lucky to have you."
