Emily Brand

Spear's Review

Emily Brand has over 25 years’ experience in family law and was instrumental in the landmark Radmacher v Granatino case which popularised pre-nups. She focuses on high-level financial work where assets are often ‘in the region of hundreds of millions’ and include complex international businesses, private equity and trust structures.

Brand is also adept at handling challenging children disputes (with special expertise in relation to children with autism). She is highly attuned to the need for complete discretion and negotiations taking place ‘behind closed doors’. This comes as no surprise as high-profile figures, including members of international royalty, count as clients.

The Cambridge alumnus was formerly the head of Winckworth Sherwood’s family department for five years before joining Boodle Hatfield’s team in 2017, where ‘she has seamlessly established herself within the firm’.

Adviser Profile

Emily is known for her creative and discreet approach acting in high profile cases often involving extensive wealth or complex issues concerning children, including international relocation. 

She advises on cases involving family businesses or private equity and has worked on several ground-breaking cases. Her particular areas of expertise include unlocking wealth concealed in business assets, or protecting wealth, that is exposed, from undue risk. 

Whether in court proceedings or negotiating private settlements, Emily delivers results for her clients, always focusing on their specific needs. She is widely respected for her combination of compassion for her clients' unique circumstances and intelligent problem-solving.
