Hannah deals with all aspects of relationship breakdown with a particular focus on advising international families living in England or overseas.

Hannah assists clients in identifying the most advantageous country in which to divorce and acts where there is a dispute as to the country in which the divorce should take place (jurisdiction disputes). She has advised clients in relation to the recognition and validity of their overseas marriages and divorces and has made representations on their behalf to the General Register Office (GRO) on this issue.

In respect of financial matters, Hannah advises clients in relation to complex financial settlements often involving international assets and taxation considerations. She has experience of financial claims in England being made after overseas divorces and also represents clients entering into pre- and post-nuptial agreements.

Firm Description

Established in 2002, Keystone Law was created by a group of pioneering lawyers who realised that the legal market was ready for something new.

A firm that uses technology and modern working practices to drive productivity and deliver results - we are structured differently, we operate differently and we think differently. Creativity, passion and innovation form the very foundations of our DNA.

Keystone provides legal advice but we do so in a way that is more efficient. With a highly bespoke and dynamic service, we also deliver better value.

Keystone has grown from a start-up to the leading law firm of its kind. Today, we have over 270 lawyers of exceptional calibre, 40 support staff and many thousands of clients.

While we continue to grow and evolve, our commitment to going above and beyond client expectation remains the same.
