Olivia’s broad practice and depth of knowledge enables her to provide clients with holistic family law advice.
Equally comfortable advising on the child and finance aspects of family breakdown for both married and cohabiting couples, and with a particular focus on cross-border cases, Olivia’s practice includes child abduction, child protection, surrogacy and fertility law.
Described in The Legal 500 as a “highly experienced family finance practitioner with impressive knowledge and experience in complex children matters”, Olivia frequently receives referrals in complex matters including in committal applications, acting for interveners, and cases involving novel points of law. Olivia has run cases to the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal, and countless cases in the High Court.
Having spent time early in her career as a legal officer at Rights of Women, and with a Master’s in Human Rights Law which focused on gender violence, Olivia is recognised for her expertise in domestic abuse and understanding of the dynamics of coercive control. Olivia sits on Resolution’s Domestic Abuse Committee, and serves on Mr Justice Cobb’s Private Law Working Group which keeps under review the court practice and procedure relating to private children cases.
Praised as “clever, focused and tenacious” and “completely dedicated to each client’s case”, Olivia joined Hunters in September 2022.
