Karen Jeary

Associate Solicitor

I am an Associate Solicitor and joined MWB in May 2018 having spent the previous three years with a niche private family firm based in Brighton where I trained and qualified as a family solicitor.

In March 2020, I qualified as a Collaborative Lawyer and in April 2021 I was made an Associate Solicitor. As a member of Resolution and a qualified Collaborative Lawyer, I am committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes.

As a family law specialist, I advises on all areas of family law including divorce and complex financial matters. I’ve dealt with a number of matters where non-disclosure was an issue, dissipation of assets, pre/post acquired wealth, involving Injunctive proceedings (Non-molestation and Occupation Orders) and with vulnerable parties requiring the appointment of a Litigation Friend.

I have acted on a number of longstanding children matters including cases with a public law crossover where a Children’s Guardian was appointed, in matters where parental alienation has been found and in matters where an Order was made providing for a ‘bar’ to further Court applications being made. In addition, I have a specific interest in internal and external child relocation cases having completed my Dissertation on the area of law.

I graduated with a First Class Honours LL.B Law with Business degree from the University of Brighton in 2012 and was awarded three final year academic prizes.  In January 2016, I passed the Legal Practice Course and in August 2016 was awarded an LL.M in Legal Practice at the University of Law Bloomsbury, London.  My dissertation was on the law relating to Child Relocation focusing on the impact recent decisions in internal and international child relocation have had on the established guidelines and the effect of those decisions on the likely outcome of future applications.

Before pursuing a career in law, I worked in the public sector gaining extensive knowledge and experience in compliance, drafting policy papers, research, analysis and business strategy.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and dog, walking, cooking and gardening.
