Sarah Balfour

Spear’s Review

Sarah Balfour, a partner in Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham branch, has spent more than 11 years advising the Midlands’ and London's wealthiest families on nuptial agreements.

Determined to disprove the notion that prenups are ‘unromantic’, she is passionate about the positivity that they can bring to a marriage. ‘Within a divorce, the greatest degree of acrimony arises from the uncertainty, the fear of the unknown. What can be more positive than a couple sitting down at the outset of their relationship, confirming their commitment to one another and acknowledging that, in the event they separate, they will treat each other with respect?’ she says.

Besides divorce and breakdown issues, Balfour’s passion is family wealth planning and protection.
