Spear’s Review

Spear’s arrives at Camilla Baldwin’s offices on a rainy day, instantly comforted by the plush sofas. The boutique’s personable founder is perennially busy, juggling high-value divorces with pro-bono work. Her charity, Not Beyond Redemption, provides support for imprisoned women facing legal difficulties concerning their children. 

‘We represent women in court, or legally, to help them through the court process, see their kids in some capacity, or try and appeal adoption orders,’ Baldwin says. ‘Our big thing is we don’t just act when they’re in prison; we do things for them until their kids are 16 … it means that you’ve got somebody who’s there for them.’ 

Through her international family law practice, Baldwin frequently supports the spouses of billionaires who, while successful in business, often cannot deal with matrimonial strife and the emotional pain accompanying divorce.

She also reflects on how things have changed in family law. ‘It was much more adversarial when I started out. You know, everyone was in court the whole time,’ she says. ‘Everything was much more litigious, much more upsetting for the clients, I would say. And over time, there’s been a big drive towards mediation and trying to resolve things.’

Camilla is the founding partner of her eponymous boutique family law firm in the heart of Mayfair, which is still thriving after almost 20 years of practice. With over 30 years of post-qualification experience in family law, and a ranking of Top Flight in the Spear’s 500 three years in a row, she is a seasoned veteran of many high-value divorce cases and a steady hand in even the most complex and fraught of cases. 

Camilla exclusively advises HNW and UHNW individuals in all areas of family law, with expertise covering the full breadth of financial issues for married and unmarried separating couples, as well as international and domestic child disputes. She also advises on complex pre- and post-nuptial agreements, many with sophisticated trust structures and significant international assets. 

Camilla’s clients include royalty, landed gentry, politicians and those in the public eye, celebrities, self-made millionaires and billionaires, and those with significant inherited wealth. Recently described by Chambers as ‘absolutely first-rate’, and by the Legal 500 as having ‘outstanding’ tactical skill, Camilla’s reputation as one of the best family lawyers in the world is hard earned, and fiercely retained. Camilla’s clients can have no doubt that their case will be handled with skill and care, and that they will quickly be provided with a coherent and comprehensive strategy for how their end goals in any matter can be achieved in a discreet and efficient manner.
