Irpreet is a specialist family lawyer who has been advising individuals for over 20 years on a wide range of family issues. Due to her empathetic and pragmatic approach, she is able to advise a breadth of clients from those with modest asset divorces through to high profile individuals looking to protect their wealth through nuptial agreements and those separating with complex asset structures.
Irpreet joined the highly regarded family law team at Freeths in 2019 having been a Partner at the internationally focussed Child & Child and, prior to that, at the regional law firm, Blake Morgan.

She has successfully seen off claims by spouses who have already had their claims dealt with overseas and are seeking ‘top-up’ financial claims in England.
Irpreet advises families and wealthy individuals seeking to protect family wealth, inheritance and pre-marital assets through pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements and has previously acted for clients wishing to protect international assets, including trusts interests, and inherited gifts of between £5-£10m from potential future divorces.
Irpreet particularly prides herself on working closely with her network of contacts to ensure her clients receive a holistic service and are introduced to relevant other advisers, such as private wealth lawyers, financial advisers and investment managers where appropriate to ensure they move forward into their post-separation futures fully supported.
