Lidia Cantele advises on all aspects of family law with a particular focus on divorce and dealing with spouse’s financial claims against each other, whether through court proceedings or using alternative forms of dispute resolution where appropriate.
Lidia can obtain emergency injunctions for clients who may be at risk of physical or emotional harm from their partners.
Lidia also acts for parents in disputes relating to children, for example, applications for child arrangement orders which regulate children’s living arrangements as between their parents, obtaining financial provision from non-resident parents for children and obtaining parental orders for the intended parents of children born via surrogacy arrangements.
Lidia drafts and negotiates pre-emptive agreements which regulate financial claims on the breakdown of relationships including nuptial agreements in the case of spouses and cohabitation agreements for unmarried couples.
Lidia’s clients come from a wide range of professional backgrounds including media, finance, fashion, sport and those with complex business interests held across jurisdictions in different corporate and trust structures.
