Dynamism, ability and empathy - Sam displays these key qualities in bucket loads! As well as being a truly outstanding advocate, she has, together with Harry Gates from her Chambers, 4 Paper Buildings, developed a revolutionary product: The Divorce Surgery. The idea of bringing both parties together for combined legal advice as to outcome is inspired and, moreover, it works, with an enviable track record of successful resolution of all levels of cases. Added to all this, Sam is a delight to work with and a formidable opponent in court. You want her on your side in a contest!

Samantha is a genuine inspiration to peers - an exceptional barrister who combines unrivalled intellect, advocacy abilities and interpersonal abilities with her entrepreneurial flair! Samantha has developed a venture to revolutionise family law. The ‘one couple, one lawyer’ concept is perfect for those separating who wish to save the emotional and financial costs of litigation. Not only is the idea stellar, its execution is a resounding success due to Samantha’s legal expertise, commitment, humanity, energy and charm.

Peer review:

'The Divorce Surgery’ is unique, allowing couples to work through issues upon separation in an amicable and dignified way, something that is often so lacking and yet is so important. As a family barrister, Sam has seen first hand the destruction that litigation can bring to families and always thinks calmly and creatively for clients to extract them from it where possible. The Divorce Surgery was created as Sam identified a clear gap in the options available to separating couples. It is a fantastic alternative and one that reflects Sam's passion for constructive, pragmatic and fair solutions. Her dedication, passion, attention to detail and work ethic when coupled with her thoughtfulness and approachability make her one of a kind. She is a delight to work with and her innovative work with the Divorce Surgery is hugely impressive.

Sam is a true trailblazer. She is has brought innovation and empathy to an area that was desperately crying out for both. Her venture, The Divorce Surgery, is a huge success driven by her dynamism and amazing ability to communicate with a wide audience. She is awe inspiring and yet always a true pleasure to work with, not a double act many can pull off!

Peer review:

Sam is one of the most gifted family barristers of her generation, an inspiration to women in law and now with the Divorce Surgery, adding entrepreneur to her many talents. The Divorce Surgery is Sam and Harry Gates's brainchild. Both, leading barristers in the 4pb stable. It has taken family law by storm and provides a novel yet beautifully simple model to divorcing couples: one couple, one lawyer. The simplicity understates what Sam actually provides through the Divorce Surgery; expert advice, accessibility, and attention to detail for both spouses delivered in a non adversarial way. In reality, if Carlsberg did family law, it would be the Divorce Surgery model and it would be led by Sam as the CEO!

The Divorce Surgery is an exceptional product of Samantha's expertise and strive for pragmatism. Her dedication to fill the gap in the divorce process by offering separating couples a cost effective way of hearing the answer is a breath of fresh air. I have sent clients to the Divorce Surgery and seen the results first hand!
