Erica Shelton

Spear's Review

Erica Shelton deals with all areas of family law at Charles Russell Speechlys, particularly complex ancillary relief cases, many involving international couples with offshore corporate, tax and trust structures, including claims after an overseas divorce. A partner with over 30 years’ experience, Shelton has had another busy year, with a high number of HNW divorces involving international couples, with complicated jurisdiction disputes, involving two or more countries.

Pre-nups, she says, are increasingly in demand, as an essential asset protection tool, amongst younger couples as well as older couples wanting to preserve wealth for their children.

Divorce rates among the over 60s are rising. ‘People are now healthier, often still working in their 60s and, with rising life expectancy, they may decide they do not want to spend another 20 to 30 years with their spouse.’

Described by observers as ‘very pleasant to deal with’, ‘sensible’ and ‘pragmatic’, she is also tough when necessary, and a good negotiator.
