We support high net worth individuals and families, both in the UK and internationally, in identifying and then implementing the arrangements that best suit their individual needs.
I have considerable experience in all areas of family law and I have acted for a wide variety of clients throughout the UK and abroad, but especially cases that require substantial client care. I also have expertise in art and cultural property law.
I specialise in divorce and dissolution of civil partnerships; complex financial issues associated with the breakdown of a relationship; matters relating to children, often with an international element, and nuptial agreements. My aim is to provide clear, sensible advice and take great care of my clients by pro-actively working through technical legal problems to achieve the best possible result.
I have written for The Times, The Observer, The Financial Times Advisor, and Spear's Magazine on topics of national interest relating to family law including cases concerning emotional abuse, with particular reference to gas lighting and coercive control. In addition, I have expertise in dealing with clients whose assets either include or relate to agriculture including dynastic family wealth and farming incomes. As a member of the Agricultural Law Association, I addressed the Association's Annual Conference on 'Divorce and Farming', and I have written several articles on the subject for The Law Society Gazette and Thomson Reuters' Practical Law.
In addition to family law, I also have expertise in art and cultural property law. I am the chair of the Next Generation Committee for the Professional Advisers to the International Art Market (PAIAM - www.paiam.org), a member of Art Resolve and an Academician Friend of the Royal Academy in London.
Rebecca Christie is superb and wise beyond her years.
Rebecca Christie is empathetic too which is very comforting for the client - knowing that she understood. I always felt she was there for me 100%.
