Jessie Smith supports high and ultra high net worth individuals in divorce, cohabitation, pre-nuptial agreements, children arrangements, and fertility related cases.
Jessie is a family lawyer specialising in the financial components in the establishment or breakdown of married or unmarried families and she has a growing practice in disputes relating to children. She regularly drafts and negotiates complex pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
She is often involved in fertility law matters and other cases relating to creating families, including surrogacy parental order applications and co-parenting agreements. Jessie prioritises early settlement wherever possible but runs her litigious matters with confidence.
Jessie tailors her advice to her clients and works with them to understand their individual needs from an early stage so that they feel supported through what is invariably a stressful and often deeply traumatic time in their lives. When appropriate to do so, Jessie works with external experts to provide a holistic approach to her clients' cases.
Additionally, she acts on cases involving addiction and other mental health issues.
Jessie has written articles for a number of publications (including The Times, This Is Money and BioNews) and she is a member of Resolution. She is the Young Lawyers Liaison Officer of the International Bar Association Family Law Committee.
