Camilla Baldwin is energetic and no-nonsense. Even when she took ‘time off’ to have children, the founder of the eponymous law firm sat as an immigration judge. It is that drive, coupled with her vast experience and polished judgement, which has led the straight-talking Baldwin to the top. Baldwin is ‘warm and clever’; even in the darkest hours of divorce she will get people through it with good spirit. Her boutique practice is singled out for its ‘immaculate level of service and advice’ as well as its ‘skill at handling high value complex cases with great success’. A recent client said: ‘Camilla Baldwin made me feel that my case was the only one in the world… They did a fantastic job.’ Since founding her practice in 2005, Baldwin has built a strong reputation advising UHNW and HNW individuals including royalty. Recent clients have included international oligarchs, an England international footballer and a professional cyclist. ‘Camilla has attracted a glut of high-value cases this year,’ says a peer, describing her as ‘very commercially astute’. In terms of notable trends, Baldwin sees continuing strong interest in pre-nuptial agreements, an area ripe for reform. Another area ‘screaming out for reform’, she says, is our ‘inherently adversarial fault-based divorce system’. She has also seen an increase in clients ‘grumbling’ about lifelong maintenance awards.
