Recently named Family Associate of the Year at the Family Law Awards, Tammy Knox is known for her cross-border children work, including in complex abduction and relocation cases. Her reported cases include having an application for summary return struck out under the Hague Convention and a successful intervention in a high-profile case concerning a trangender birth parent (the latter on behalf of a human rights NGO).

Outside of her client practice, Knox is the only family practitioner appointed to the UK Ministry of Justice’s advisory group, and is also the author of the Private Law Children chapter of the Resolution handbook. She has written and spoken on topics including parental alienation and the proposed recognition of the Gender Reform Act.
