Charlotte Skea-Strachan

Spear’s Review 

With more than 20 years of experience as a divorce practitioner working with HNWs and UHNWs, Charlotte Skea-Strachan has developed a broad-ranging family law offering at Payne Hicks Beach, which includes crafting pre-nuptial agreements and reviewing complex asset bases and structures. She seeks to find long-lasting solutions to help de-coupling spouses both financially and emotionally. 

Skea-Strachan has worked on reported cases in the Court of Appeal, High Court and the Supreme Court — including working on the landmark Owens case, which later spurred the creation of no-fault divorce. 

Her practice also contains a strong element of children work, including issues relating to welfare, schooling and living arrangements.

The Oxford graduate joined Payne Hicks Beach in 2006 after time spent at Thomas Eggar and Charles Russell, where she trained.
