Debbie is a partner at Stewarts Law specialising in family matters, dealing with all aspects but with a particular bias towards cases involving complex financial issues with high value assets, including those with an international dimension.

Debbie co-founded Creative Divorce (then Collaborative Solutions) as England’s first multi-disciplinary group of collaborative professionals and maintains a thriving collaborative law practice. She is a Fellow of the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and a long-standing member of the Resolution Standards Committee, writing the organisation’s published Good Practice Guide to working with the Bar.

Debbie is Highly Recommended in Spears Wealth Management, listed in the Honours and Power Women sections of the Citywealth Leaders List 2014 which has previously described her as combining “truly excellent inspiring client-care with really solid legal analysis and a completely unstuffy approach steeped in commercial reality” and she appears in the 2013 Thomson Reuters’ London Super Lawyers List which recognises solicitors who have distinguished themselves in their legal practice and is limited to only 5% of solicitors within London.

Chambers & Partners 2015 states that “she will negotiate hard and is open to collaborative approaches. She can see solutions that other people can’t.”
