Partner & Head of Department

Margaret Baker

Margaret Baker, HK Law

Margaret is a Partner and Head of the Litigation and Family Law Department, who advises on complex cases in family law matters.

As a mother and someone who has been through a divorce herself, I am fully aware of the impact divorce can have, not only on the adults but importantly, I understand how it can affect children. The financial issues surrounding separation and divorce can be complex and it is important to have a strategy and my years of experience can assist in planning the route that suits your aims best ie retaining the family home, pension shares, maintenance or all of these things if relevant. I have dealt with complex financial cases and have the insight to guide clients through a stressful period in their lives.

I also deal with property disputes between co-owners regarding ownership claims and Inheritance Act claims arising from second marriages or between cohabitees.

If you are going through the breakdown of your relationship then I have the expertise, the experience and the empathy to help you through the process.
