Marion joined Townsend’s in May 2018 and in December 2020 she took over ownership of the practice from the founder Melanie Townsend.
Marion has a wealth of legal and business experience. A reputation built over more than twenty five 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.
With a reputation for settling disputes before trial, Marion’s 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.
Marion’s service is tailored to meet the individual needs of her clients. Her style is personable but professional. Clients appreciate Marion’s strong but calming and reassuring approach. Advice on settlement is delivered early to manage expectations and to avoid disappointment.
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 and has a daughter. When she is not busy at work or spending time with her family, she likes to swim. Trying out new recipes and cooking and enjoying time with family and friends is also a favourite past time.
