I lead the Duncan Cotterill national family and relationship law practice. I and my team specialise in all areas of family law ranging from parenting disputes to property disputes to estate claims.
In particular I specialise in relationship property, both the protection of assets prior to and during a relationship and the division of assets upon separation including personally owned assets, companies and trust property.
Having a background in both law and psychology and with years of practise in family law, I have extensive experience dealing with highly emotive situations. I pursue all avenues and adapt to achieve the best result for clients through negotiation, mediation and court. I am also trained in collaborative law.

I have practised family law in the UK and New Zealand.
