Fiona Turner



Fiona joined Weightmans' family law team in 2015. As a partner with 30 years' experience, she deals exclusively with family law issues. Having practised in London with leading and innovative family law firms before relocating to Manchester, Fiona has a global practice, dealing with matters for clients wherever they are based — whether in the North West region, London or elsewhere in the UK or overseas.

Main practice areas include advising on wealth protection strategies (including pre and post nuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements); divorce and dissolution (including international issues), financial settlements for married and unmarried couples (often involving businesses, land (including farms), trusts and pensions), children law and international relocation cases.

Fiona and the team at Weightmans provide a bespoke, tailor-made service for each individual client. Fiona offers a range of dispute resolution options as a trained mediator, collaborative lawyer and litigator and is recognised for providing strategic case management and a focused, realistic and discreet approach to clients.

Former clients include high net worth and high profile individuals, entrepreneurs, business owners, land owners and professionals.

In one matter on which Fiona was instructed, the Court of Appeal stated that they had "never seen a financial case of greater complexity".

Fiona is an accredited member of the nationwide family law organisation Resolution and is Secretary of the Manchester Resolution Committee. She is a member of the Manchester Dispute Resolution Group and chairs/presents to a number of other professional groups.

She is a co-author of previous editions of Resolution's Good Practice guidance and regularly writes for the national and local press.

Fiona is recognised as a leader in her field by the Legal Directories and fellow professionals.

Fiona is part of the winning team named Family Law Firm of the Year at the LexisNexis Family Law Awards.
