She joined from international law firm, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, where she was a tax lawyer. During her time at Freshfields, Caroline worked on a wide range of cross-border, commercial transactions, involving both corporate clients and major financial institutions.
Since joining Hughes Fowler Carruthers in 2008, Caroline has worked on a number of reported cases and has built up extensive experience across the whole spectrum of family law work, in particular in relation to complex financial disputes arising on divorce and separation, disputes involving children and the drafting and negotiation of pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
Clients have great confidence in Caroline’s calm and thorough approach and describe her as determined, clever and focussed, combining this with genuine kindness and warmth.
Chambers UK 2020 recognises Caroline as “a star in the making”, and praises her for her “very calm, very sensitive” approach. In 2019, Chambers described her as “fantastic – a force to be reckoned with, who is frequently ahead of the game. She has a razor-sharp intellect and nothing gets past her”. Chambers HNW 2019 ranked Caroline and described her as “financially numerate and on the ball” and “terribly calm and terribly clever”. Chambers also noted she is “a real technical and personal support at a tough time for clients” and “a likeable, high-quality person”.
The Legal 500 2020 reconfirms Caroline’s rating as a ‘Leading Individual’ and praises her as being “equally skilled at handling the most complex divorce and financial remedy cases as pre and post nuptial agreements and contested children matters”. The Guide also commended Caroline as “very bright, very efficient and a pleasure to deal with”. The Legal 500 2019 Guide described her as “forensic on detail while never losing sight of priorities”.
Her interests outside work include travel, hiking, food and wine and reading.
Caroline has a first-class degree from Cambridge University and a Master’s degree from the University of Chicago.
