Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer profiles our CEO and our One Couple One Lawyer service

Our CEO, Samantha Woodham, qualified as a solicitor at magic circle law firm Freshfields before converting to the Bar 13 years ago. Today, they have chosen to profile her and The Divorce Surgery as part of their alumni programme.

In Samantha’s words:

Most separating couples do not want a conflict-ridden path to legal advice; they just want to achieve a result which is fair to each of them. For couples who are open and transparent about their assets (which is the vast majority) we offer a way to get the highest level of expertise with the least conflict. 42 per cent of marriages end in divorce: as a society we need to do it better.’
