‘She is always meticulously prepared and clients love her attention to detail,’ says a senior family lawyer of Marina Faggionato of Queen Elizabeth Building Chambers. ‘She has the key skills of empathy with clients and an intuitive understanding of how to persuade them to follow her strategic advice,’ is the verdict of another.
A fluent French-speaker, Faggionato’s practice covers the entire spectrum of family work, with particular emphasis on the financial aspects of divorce as well as disputes involving children (including Schedule 1 provision, abduction and relocation cases). She has argued in front of courts of all levels, up to and including the Court of Appeal, and is increasingly led by the most senior silks within her chambers.
Marina's practice covers all areas of family law with a particular focus on the financial consequences of separation and divorce (in England and abroad), disputes involving children (including Schedule 1 provision and relocation) and inheritance cases. She advises individuals, trusts and other corporate entities from around the world – and acts for them once litigation is underway. Marina prides herself on working closely with her instructing solicitors, giving excellent objective and pragmatic advice, and finding creative ways to avoid or solve family disputes. If clients do find themselves in court, Marina's meticulous preparation, financial acumen and elegant advocacy is much sought after.
