Anna Stanworth


A full-service family lawyer, Anna Stanworth has significant experience of financial remedies and cohabitation disputes. Areas of specialism include applying for expedited divorce proceedings, issuing a divorce petition under the ‘lock and key’ procedure, and so-called ‘jurisdiction races’ (where parties rush to issue divorce proceedings in different territories).

Her notable financial remedy cases, meanwhile, have involved farming assets, properties abroad, unusual pension arrangements and unvested shares. She also drafts pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, as well as cohabitation agreements to regulate financial matters during a couple’s relationship.

Where necessary, she can call on the support of colleagues from across BDB Pitmans’ private wealth department (including trust specialists), as well as third-party accountants and international tax and trust experts.
