Helen is a specialist family and divorce lawyer at leading regional law firm, Rix & Kay. She is based in the firm’s Sevenoaks office and acts for private clients and works closely with the firm’s commercial teams, especially when businesses are involved in relationship break ups. She is also a Resolution trained Mediator and Collaborative Lawyer and has recently been recognised in Legal 500 2017, a leading independent research journal examining lawyers and law firm capabilities.
Helen works with a wide range of clients both in terms of their financial circumstances and their geographic location whether in the West Kent area or further afield, including receiving instructions from overseas clients who have assets in the UK.
Having been qualified for over twenty years, Helen is highly experienced in advising on all aspects of relationship breakdown. She has a detailed knowledge of managing complex financial cases, including cases involving overseas assets; family trusts; property held by more than one family member; shares in family companies and farms; and inherited assets. Helen regularly advises parents who cannot agree on the arrangements for their children after their own relationship has broken down.
Helen’s preferred approach is to negotiate the best outcome for her clients, as she believes engaging in the Court process is not only a lengthy and expensive way to resolve matters but also damaging to any chance of a working relationship being maintained in the future between separating couples. If, however, the Court process is inevitable, Helen will not hesitate to give that advice.
