Head of Family, Partner
Lyn Brisley has been based in our Peterborough office since 1997. She handles all aspects of divorce and separation as well as doing preventative work with cohabitation contracts and prenuptial agreements. Lyn particularly enjoys working with clients involved in farming and family run businesses, where solutions need to be found for all family members involved in the business enterprise. She also has a real interest in dealing with international clients’ cases involving cultural diversity.
Lyn is a trained Collaborative Lawyer who aims to help couples reach an agreement on how assets should be divided in a civilised way without the stress of going to Court. In addition, Lyn is a trained family mediator. She uses her experience to guide and assist couples to explore options that work for both partners. Lyn also has extensive experience in Court as well as dealing with more complex cases and high net worth individuals.
Lyn’s style is to listen and adapt her approach and advice to the client’s circumstances and wishes. She fights her client’s corner vigorously but in a non-confrontational way, which she finds is more effective at achieving the best outcome. She is also a member of Resolution (a leading family law association), various local business groups and Governor for a local primary school.
Chambers UK 2016 spoke to sources who say: "I think the way she does things is very personable and empathetic. She has a huge amount of experience, which gives clients confidence."
The Legal 500 describes Lyn's style as 'has a passion for ADR'.
