Silvia Devecchi

Spear's Review

As practice head of Vardags’ Cambridge office, as well as the firm’s director of divorce and family law, Silvia Devecchi works on complex and high-value cases. Many include non-matrimonial property, tax and business assets issues, often with an international element. As a one-time immigration lawyer she has an extra string to her bow, which can prove useful in cases where family law and immigration overlap. Accordingly, she has built a substantial practice in international cases, dealing with issues of relocation, child abduction and jurisdiction.

Devecchi frequently acts for parents in applications under Section 8 of the Children Act 1989, including those featuring non-compliance and enforcement.

Adviser Profile

Devecchi provides strategic advice to clients, allowing them to move forward with their lives in a strong financial position after the breakdown of their relationship. She offers pragmatic, commercial advice, ensuring no stone is left unturned, so clients feel in control during what can be a very frightening process.

Devecchi’s Cambridge team are the 'go-to' lawyers for wealthy individuals and families in East Anglia, as well as throughout the country. She often deals with cases involving various jurisdictions, with a particular focus on Italy. Her client base has grown exponentially over recent years, and she has achieved highly satisfactory settlements, often above and beyond what her clients thought was achievable.
