Anna Wakeling

Senior Associate

I specialise in family law, including divorce and relationship breakdowns, cohabitation, jurisdictional disputes, children issues and pre and post nuptial agreements.


I qualified as a solicitor in 2011 and joined Fladgate in 2014.

My practice encompasses all aspects of private family law. I have particular experience advising on complex financial issues resulting from a relationship breaking down. Often these may involve highly valuable assets, offshore trusts or corporate entities. I am committed to achieving the best outcome for my clients, whether that means settlement outside of the court process or litigating within it.

I have expertise in advising clients on issues relating to children. This includes contact arrangements, residence, international relocation and child abduction. I work with clients to sensitively resolve what are often complex and protracted disputes concerning children.

I have also advised on claims brought under the Inheritance Act 1975 and contested probate matters.

Away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my young daughter, as well as hill walking, skiing and scuba diving (although significantly less of the latter three since the arrival of my daughter!). I also volunteer as a family law advisor for the charity, ‘Rights of Women’.
