Expertise

Marina’s practice covers all areas of family law work with a particular focus on the financial consequences of divorce and disputes involving children, including Schedule 1 provision, abduction and relocation cases. Marina has represented clients in courts of all levels up to and including the Court of Appeal, where she was commended for “the maturity and frankness of her presentation” and “her mastery of the documentation.” She is increasingly led by silks.

Ranked in Chambers & Partners Band 1 for her Matrimonial Finance work, Marina was the Legal 500 Family Junior of the year in 2018.

She has been described as being “hugely intelligent” giving “sound commercial advice” and having “exceptional client care skills.” The most recent edition records that “She has a maturity and gravitas in excess of her call and excels at international cases… She is destined for great things.”

Marina has a particular interest in cases with a foreign dimension and has practical experience of family law in France obtained during her time as a Pegasus scholar with the Parisian law firm Lafarge Associes. Marina is fluent in French.

In 2014 Marina was named as one of the Lawyer Magazine’s “Hot 100” (the only barrister amongst the three family practitioners), and as a “Top Recommended” in the Spears Wealth Index. She has also been shortlisted for the Jordan’s Family Law Junior Barrister of the Year.

“A fierce advocate at the top of her game, she gets to the nub of the matter incredibly quickly and is able to distil complex legal issues into clear, concise language for clients." "She's practical, outcome-focused and doesn't leave a stone unturned." "Marina is down-to-earth and has the ability to make complicated matters sound simple. She cuts through the issues and comes up with solutions.”
