Jane is a partner specialising in family law, particularly in more complex financial cases and difficult disputes concerning arrangements for children, in both married and unmarried cases. She regularly receives referrals from professional colleagues abroad and has an increasing international element to her practice.
With more than 25 years' experience, first in London with Manches' highly regarded family department and then in Oxford, she is widely lauded as a leading family law practitioner in the Thames Valley. She has been accorded top ranking in both Chambers UK and The Legal 500 for many years. According to the 2016 edition of Chambers UK, Jane is regarded as an outstanding practitioner in her field and is described as ‘wise and knowledgeable – she knows all there is to know’. The latest edition of The Legal 500 notes that she is ‘extraordinarily patient, calm and emphatic, but never loses sight of strategic and legal priorities’.
Jane is a member of Resolution, a national organisation of family lawyers committed to non-confrontational divorce, separation and other family problems and a trained collaborative lawyer. In 2015 she became the first lawyer in Oxford and the Thames Valley to be awarded a fellowship of the International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL). IAFL is the worldwide association recognising expert family lawyers in their respective countries; only a small number of UK family law specialists outside London are members.
