More than two decades in family law has taught Jane McDonagh many lessons, but none more so than the time she helped her own mother through divorce. ‘It made me realise how rewarding it could be,’ she told Spear’s.

Simons Muirhead & Burton’s head of family is recognised by industry commentators as ‘sensible, unflappable and approachable’. Her practice is financially complex and international and utilises her niche expertise in Sharia law. McDonagh stresses that each client’s circumstances are different. While some consider divorce to be an emotional journey, others merely ‘want it over and done with efficiently and quickly’.
