Elizabeth Hicks

Spear’s Review

Elizabeth Hicks, director at Family Law in Partnership, provides legal assistance to HNW and UHNW clients – many of whom are business owners and entrepreneurs, and some of whom are high-profile – with an array of family law issues.

She is an expert in children law, financial remedies and matrimonial issues, including prenuptial agreements, and is also experienced in dealing with cases which have cross-jurisdictional elements.

The director is ‘passionate about making separation and divorce better for the people involved, particularly the children’. While she has successfully taken many cases through the courts, she advises clients to look to arbitration and private agreements first, even when representing the lower-profile party who might see the threat of publicity as a bargaining chip. 

‘That’s the responsibility that we have as practitioners, as lawyers, looking at things holistically, looking at things for the sake of the entire family, children in particular,’ she told Spear’s. ‘How can it be in a child’s interest to see their parents being dragged through the press?’

Adviser Profile

With a wealth of experience across all areas of family law, Elizabeth is ranked by the legal directories as one of the best family lawyers in the country with comments including: “Elizabeth Hicks is a true star of her generation...” 

Elizabeth’s approach is shaped by her work as an experienced collaborative lawyer and a robust litigator. She draws on her vast array of skills to deliver the very best outcomes for her clients. Elizabeth’s work includes divorce, contested financial remedy cases and asset protection, often involving international aspects. She also advises on complicated private Children Act cases and on Pre and Post Marital Agreements, the latter often involving the use of the collaborative approach.
