Yuliya is a solicitor in our family team, able to advise on a wide range of issues arising out of relationship breakdown. Yuliya has expertise in all aspects of family law, including financial settlements on divorce, children disputes as well as pre- and postnuptial agreements.

Yuliya deals with multi-value divorces, often including extensive financial disclosure, non-matrimonial arguments, complex remuneration structures and international elements. She has experience in matters where there are allegations of abuse, and has a particular interest in cases where parents or their children have mental health issues or Special Educational Needs (SEN).

Yuliya has also acted for stay-at-home parents and their applications for a payment of legal services and interim maintenance pending legal proceedings.

Clients often refer to Yuliya’s ‘pragmatic’, ‘strategic’ and ‘efficient’ approach to matters.

Yuliya is a member of Resolution, a community of family professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues in a calm and constructive way. As such, Yuliya is committed to resolving family law issues in a non-confrontational manner where possible, but she is equally confident in litigating matters which require court intervention.

Yuliya speaks Ukrainian, Russian and French.
