Profile

Pauline Fowler

Description

Spear's Review

Pauline Fowler has worked with fellow founding partner Frances Hughes since 1985, first at Bates, Wells & Braithwaite and now at Hughes Fowler Carruthers. Both are well-known and respected family lawyers.

Fowler has continued to receive significant instructions throughout her career on a wide range of matters, nearly all of them with an international element, preferring to find solutions outside court where possible. She has a varied practice that covers UHNW finances as well as every aspect of children’s law, including surrogacy and international adoption.

She is also a fellow of the International Academy of Family Lawyers, a member of The Pensions Advisory Group and of Resolution, chairing its Pensions, Tax and Financial Remedies Committee.

Adviser Profile

A "steely" and "brilliant" lawyer, founding partner Pauline Fowler is consistently recognised as a leading individual in the legal directories and is renowned for her representation of High and Ultra High Net Worth clients in divorce proceedings involving substantial cross-border assets.

As well as specialising in complex divorce, Fowler is well versed in complex children's work, including international adoption, surrogacy and modern families. She is a highly regarded senior mediator, well known for her work in this area.

Fowler recently acted in a complex Children Act case — the first appellate decision in a private children's law matter on the use of remote hearings in the pandemic.
