Peer review:

Emma is one of the most outstanding family lawyers in practice. Her wisdom, efficiency, ability to cut straight to the chase, and to give top- notch clear advice to clients are all remarkable. I never cease to be blown away by her ability, by her intelligence and by the savoir faire that she exudes with her clients and opponents alike. She is universally respected by her peers as an opponent to do business with. Terrific!

Peer review:

Emma is an outstanding family lawyer and the “Jewel in the Crown” of Stewart’s family law team. I have worked with Emma on a number of exceptionally complex cases where we have succeeded in resolving the serious practical issues facing the family in a fair and cost-effective basis. She is a tough and very capable opponent but one who is good-humoured, bright with an amazing sense of style - Emma a real credit to the profession.

Peer review:

I have worked closely with Emma Hatley for several years and cannot recommend her highly enough. Emma has an enviable combination of sharp intellect, fierce determination to do the best for her clients and an ability to achieve practical and sensible solutions. Clients quickly, and rightly, put their complete trust in her and Emma delivers advice that is clear and concise, all of which gives the clients confidence at a stage in their lives when they can otherwise feel so insecure. Emma has developed an excellent reputation and is widely seen as a leading light in her field which I wholeheartedly endorse.

Companies disputed that their assets constitute a nuptial settlement

Emma acted in groundbreaking case on behalf of multiple companies who have been joined to financial remedy proceedings in the High Court to defend against a wife’s claims for a declaration that the companies or any of them or any of their assets constitute a nuptial settlement susceptible to the Court's powers under section 24(1)(c) of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973, and a finding that that the English Court has power to make orders in respect of English situs assets held within a nuptial trust structure, even if the assets are held below corporate level within that structure. The corporate empire is valued at many tens of millions of pounds and all of the underlying assets are English situs assets held under offshore trusts. Listed for three-week final hearing at the end of 2017.
