06.08.2018 / Kerstin Beyer

We are excited to announce that Monika Pirani, whom we have known for many years, has joined Beyer Family Law Solicitors. This is what Monika says:

■ I have extensive experience (qualified 1995), and I am particularly skilled in managing complex disputes involving financial and children issues.

■ I am a family mediator, accredited by the Family Mediation Council, and can help families identify viable solutions to their problems without the need for contested court proceedings.

■ As a member of Resolution, the association of 6500 lawyers and other professionals in England and Wales, I am committed to resolving disputes in a constructive manner if at all possible.

■ I have wide experience of cases with international elements. I am bilingual (English and German).

My experience covers the full range of family law disputes arising from the breakdown of relationships between married or unmarried couples, including those in civil partnerships. I have extensive experience in drafting and advising on pre- and post-marital agreements, or civil partnerships and cohabitation agreements.

Where children are concerned, my experience includes disputes about arrangements for children following a separation, and cross-border matters such as applications for permission to remove children from the jurisdiction of England & Wales.

I qualified as a lawyer in 1995. I was Partner and Head of the Family Team at Christian Khan solicitors in Bloomsbury (2001-08), and also worked at Bishop & Sewell, Bloomsbury, and Docklands Solicitors at Canary Wharf.

I am married to a university researcher and live in London. We have a daughter and two young grandsons.

Positions and qualifications:

■ I am accredited by Resolution in Advanced Financial Provision and Children Law.
■ I am a Member of the Law Society for England and Wales, and an Accredited Member of the Family Law Panel.
■ I served on the Management Committee of the Plumstead Community Law Centre from 1994 to 2015, most of the time as Chair. I am also former Chair of the International Committee of the City of Westminster and Holborn Law Society.
■ I am a Committee Member of the British German Jurists Association, a group of lawyers and other professionals interested in British-German legal practice.
