Cheyenne joined Hughes Fowler Carruthers in January 2019, having relocated from Melbourne, Australia. While working as a paralegal at the firm, Cheyenne undertook Practical Legal Training and qualified as a lawyer in Australia, while also becoming a foreign registered lawyer in England & Wales, in December 2022, which permits her to advise on all aspects of English family law.
Cheyenne is well versed in working with international and domestic clients. She has particular expertise in working on cases in which there are complex and high value company structures, offshore assets, and allegations of non-disclosure. She also works on private law children matters which involve relocation applications, allegations of coercive control, contact disputes and adoptions.
She has worked on a number of cases which feature parental alienation, including a long standing, highly contentious matter resulting in the children’s care being transferred to the firm’s client.
Cheyenne is focused and detail-orientated, and is skilled at handling sensitive and confidential issues. While she is committed to finding conflict-free resolutions, she has experience in all areas of litigation and is meticulous in her preparation.
Cheyenne works primarily with Renato Labi who says, “Cheyenne is an invaluable member of our team. She has quickly accrued experience in the most difficult of cases. She is a creative, assiduous and empathetic lawyer.”
Interests: reformer pilates, politics and theatre.
