Marion Foley


Marion joined Townsends in May 2018 bringing with her a wealth of legal and business experience.

A reputation built over more than twenty years means that much of Marion’s work comes through recommendation from clients, their ex partners and other solicitors.  She acts for men and women alike and routinely represents business clients, the self-employed as well as city, medical and IT professionals.  

Marion has established a strong practice in divorce and financial settlements with an emphasis on financially complex break ups between married, unmarried and same sex couples involving business structures, pensions and overseas assets. She also specialises in disputes over children.

Clients have praised Marion for her steely approach towards negotiations and her ability to cut through the issues.  With a reputation for settling disputes before trial, her aim is to maximise a settlement without wasting precious time or money. She routinely opposes the big London firms and she prides herself on delivering a City service without the City price tag.

Clients appreciate the quality of Marion’s client care delivered with compassion and reassurance. Her service is bespoke and tailored to meet her client’s individual needs.

After a detour working in the City, Marion took the traditional university route to qualifying as a solicitor.  Since qualifying in 1997, she has specialised exclusively in the field of family law. Marion is a long standing member of Resolution.

Marion is married with a daughter. When she isn’t busy with the three “H’s” (hobbies, homework and house stuff) she likes to swim. Trying out new recipes and cooking for friends and family is also a favourite past time.
