Hughes Fowler Carruthers


Courtney joined Hughes Fowler Carruthers in 2020 after qualifying as a family solicitor in 2018.

 

Courtney practises all types of family law, for a wide variety of clients. She regularly handles complex financial matters, involving international asset structures, high value business and property interests, and inherited or pre-acquired wealth. She has acted both for and against the main breadwinners in relationships and is able and ready to undertake any forensic exercise required, or to pursue injunctive relief where necessary.

Courtney also works on private law children matters including relocation applications, and residence and contact disputes where there are allegations of risk to the child. She has particular experience in Schedule 1 cases.

Courtney actively encourages her clients to try to reach an amicable solution where possible, whether through mediation or another form of alternative dispute resolution, however she is not afraid of the challenge of litigation and will fight for her clients to the utmost where required.

Courtney appreciates that family proceedings can be incredibly difficult for a client, and she approaches all her cases with empathy and compassion, working with the client to find the best outcome, and leaving no stone unturned in the process.
