About Natalie

Natalie is well known as a family specialist dealing with a wide range of family law matters. She deals predominantly with divorce, financial settlements on divorce and arrangements for children. Natalie is known for her calm and pragmatic approach. She specialises in advising and representing a range of clients but particularly those with complex asset bases, sports and media personalities, owners of landed estates with inherited and dynastic wealth, business owners, directors, lottery winners, members of the judiciary and other professionals.

Natalie joined the highly regarded family team at Freeths in 2023 having been a partner at Brabners LLP where she had been for 16 years. During that time, she has built a reputation in Liverpool for achieving speedy and sensible resolutions.

Natalie’s specialism is complex financial remedy proceedings. She is known to be a pragmatist and straight talker who can get to the crux of a matter quickly. Natalie also advises families and wealthy individuals on wealth protection agreements including pre-nups, post-nups and cohabitation agreements.

Natalie’s work includes private children matters (including a specialism in internal and international relocation in the High Court), financial provision for children under Schedule 1 Children Act and dealing with property disputes arising from the breakdown of cohabiting relationships.

Natalie takes a proactive and pragmatic approach. She focuses on negotiated settlements and joint settlement meetings where appropriate, provides legal support alongside mediation and arbitration, and representation at Court where necessary.

Natalie has been ranked in Chambers and Partners since 2021 and Legal 500 since 2000. The 2023 edition of Chambers noted that “she has incredible attention to detail, a phenomenal manner with clients and an incredibly impressive knowledge of the law”.

Natalie is a trained mental health first aider and utilises this to support clients as much as possible.

Natalie is an active member of Resolution and former Secretary of Merseyside Young Professionals. She actively takes part organising and running both networking and charity events across the city. She sits of the Board of the Sefton Park Palm House Preservation Trust and the Liverpool Sportswoman’s Lunch.
