Withers LLP 16 Old Bailey London EC4M 7EG
I am a Partner in the Family Law Team at Withers LLP. I deal with all types of family law – divorce; financial issues; children disputes; pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements; civil partnership disputes; and cases involving foreign elements for example.
I wrote and co-trained the family law arbitration course in England and Wales and was one of the first Accredited Family Arbitrators in this jurisdiction.
I am an accredited Resolution Mediator and have a thriving mediation practice as well as being a qualified Collaborative lawyer.
Some quotes from the Directories regarding my work:
‘…highly respected for ADR’
‘…real focus on integration of legal advice within the system, and is at the opposite end on the scale from fluffy – what you want as a participant seeking closure.’
‘…the “calm and pro-active” Suzanne Kingston garners much praise. She is “steeped in ADR” and is able to keep a clear head even when the temperature rises between the parties and can steer the discussions in the right direction’
Legal 500, 2013, 2014 & 2015
‘…highly skilled at dealing with “high-conflict cases”, (and) has led the way in introducing dispute resolution (DR) into family law.’
‘…colleagues from the country’s top law firms have nothing but praise for Kingston, who is described as hardworking, rigorous and reliable.’
Spears Wealth Management Family Law Index 2013 & 2015
‘…queen of mediation, collaborative law and arbitration.’
‘…She is very good with clients and very sympathetic. She will avoid court where possible, but can litigate when she needs to.’
