‘As a parent, I have a huge amount of respect for any other parent. You have to think about what is the best outcome for the entire family,’ says Sarah Hutchinson, who is known for both high-end divorce work and complex leave-toremove applications. Hutchinson, a new partner at Farrer, also handles child abduction matters and has contacts across numerous jurisdictions. ‘I’ve had two maternity leaves in the past five years — which in many respects is sort of research,’ she jokes. Her notable cases include KG v LG, resolving issues of non-disclosure; BD v FD, which considered the issue of profligate spending in the lead-up to a trial; and Y v Y, a matter involving a landed estate and inherited assets.
