Lottie trained as a solicitor at Manches LLP before joining the Weightmans’ family team. Based in our London office, Lottie has over fifteen years’ experience advising on all aspects of private family law and has also established a family mediation practice.
Lottie is an active member of Resolution. She historically founded the regional group YRes Manchester and currently sits on the Resolution Standards Committee. She is an accredited specialist in international family law, children law (disputes between parents or relatives) and complex financial and property matters (high-income households and substantial assets). She writes for the Family Law Journal and contributed to the current edition of the Resolution Family Law Handbook.
Lottie finds all aspects of her work as a family solicitor engaging and rewarding. She is particularly keen to find practical solutions to disputes and minimise the impact of separation on children. She is a trained collaborative lawyer and happy to discuss resolving cases through a series of meetings rather than through the court process. As a mediator, Lottie works together with separating couples to facilitate them reaching their own understanding. She is a member of the Family Mediators Association (FMA) and the Family Mediation Council (FMC).
Lottie has an MA in French and Italian which assists in international cases. She was runner up for the International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL) European Chapter Annual Award for young family lawyers in 2014. In 2018 Lottie was shortlisted for 'Family Lawyer of the year – Associate' in the Citywealth Future Leaders Awards 2018.
