Anna-Laura Lock, Senior Associate at Winckworth Sherwood

Anna-Laura is an Senior Associate in the Family team having trained and qualified at the firm. She advises on all aspects of family law both advising individuals during a relationship to help them plan for their future and also after a relationship has broken down. She is committed to brokering solutions for people experiencing what is, invariably, an emotionally challenging period of their lives. In many cases it is possible to do so without the need for court proceedings to be issued but this is sometimes unavoidable in order to protect a vulnerable individual or find a way forward that allows both parties to move on with their lives.

Anna-Laura’s practice includes divorce and complex financial matters involving companies, especially family businesses, pre and post nuptial or civil partnership agreements, cohabitation and cases involving an international element. She advises regularly in relation to issues involving children with an awareness of the importance of finding a child-focused solution whilst at the same time supporting clients through a sensitive and painful time.

She is a member of Resolution and of Resolution’s Parenting after Parting Committee which is tasked with encouraging and training family law practitioners to help parents work together to agree arrangements for their children following separation.
