Laura Winterbottom

Spear's Review

A special counsel in Withers’ divorce and family team, Laura Winterbottom advises clients on issues stemming from separation, divorce or dissolution, with a view to achieving a resolution that makes commercial sense for them.

‘I would not have been able to achieve a conclusion without her efforts,’ reads a testimony from one grateful client. ‘She had a professional grip on the case throughout and used her experienced approach to conclude the case.' 

Winterbottom frequently advises individuals with complex financial affairs, including trusts, company structures and inherited assets. Notable cases include advising a member of a dynastic UHNW family on an international prenuptial agreement and the potential impact of Brexit.
