Danielle is a senior associate and an experienced family lawyer. She joined Clifton Ingram in January 2021 having previously worked in the Legal 500 ranked family department of a regional firm.

Danielle advises on a broad spectrum of family issues from financial settlements, proceedings relating to the arrangements for children and cohabitation disputes between non-married couples. She also has experience in advising on and preparing pre/post nuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements as a means of limiting the disputes in the event of a relationship breakdown. Danielle’s particular expertise lies in resolving mid to high net worth finances following a divorce and she has a particular interest in cases involving complex business interests and structures.

As a member of Resolution, Danielle is committed to resolving family disputes in a constructive and non-adversarial way. She is the secretary for the Resolution Committee for Buckinghamshire and Berkshire and is involved in organising training and networking opportunities for family practitioners in the region.

In September 2020, Danielle became a Resolution accredited specialist for complex financial remedy proceedings (mid-high net worth) and for private children proceedings. The Resolution accreditation scheme is a rigorous assessment process to demonstrate high levels of knowledge, practical application of the law and best practice.

Danielle undertook her mediation foundation training in 2019 and is now also a qualified mediator, currently working towards accredited mediator status.

Danielle was recommended in the Legal 500, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Experience ¦ Key projects

Danielle’s recent experience is as follows:

  • Successfully negotiating a favourable financial settlement on behalf of a client at an FDR hearing where the other party raised complex legal arguments in a bid to drastically reduce the client’s financial settlement. Danielle’s strategic and focused advice saw the matter resolved through negotiations which resulted in a fair outcome to both parties.
  • Represented a client in contested children act proceedings where the other party sought to minimise the client’s role in the children’s lives by raising allegations of substance misuse. Danielle’s advice and guidance throughout the process saw the matter settle with a staged progression towards shared care of the children.
  • Represented a client in financial remedy proceedings in a case involving complex business interests held in trust and which the other party tried to place out of reach of the client.
  • Advised numerous clients with significant business interests in divorce and financial remedy proceedings and negotiated favourable outcomes.
  • Advising and negotiating financial settlements for clients with assets held in the UK and overseas.

Interests and Hobbies

Danielle like being in the great outdoors and enjoys keeping fit by going to the gym. She also enjoys travelling, cooking and spending time with her family and friends.
