Amanda Bell

Associate | London

Amanda is an associate in the divorce and family team.

She specialises in complex matrimonial finance work and has a particular interest in pre and postnuptial agreements. She also has experience in children matters, including cases involving intractable contact and parental alienation.

Amanda works with a wide range of clients, both domestic and international, including City professionals, entrepreneurs, the independently wealthy, people in media and their spouses/partners.

She builds strong relationships with her clients by listening to them and offering them pragmatic, solution focused advice. She aims to work together with clients to reach a negotiated settlement out of the court arena wherever possible. When proceedings (whether in court or arbitration) are necessary, she is used to litigating to achieve the best possible outcome for her clients.
