BEVERLEY MORRIS LODDERS SOLICITORS
Beverley is an equity partner, collaboratively trained lawyer and head of the family team at Lodders. She merged her practice, Divorce & Family Law Practice with Lodders in July 2017. She has been consistently recognised by Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners over the years in her field of expertise.
What is your career history?
My working life has been devoted to family law. In the latter 15 years I’ve concentrated on financial cases particularly those involving complex issues. I’ve been to the Court of Appeal on many occasions and this year had a case progress to the Supreme Court.
What services do you provide?
My team covers all aspects of family law. I specialise in financial cases and have seen a marked increase in enquiries relating to prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Often it is the valuation of assets in cases which causes significant difficulty - it can be very hard to put a value on a private limited company and frequently experts’ opinions vary widely.
What advice would you give to couples/families going through this process?
Court should be the last resort – it is stressful, uncertain and costly. To negotiate a settlement should always be the objective as the court is a blunt instrument and what parties can agree to, the court sometimes does not have the power to impose.
