Suzanne Kingston is passionate about keeping clients out of court when possible, so much so that she’s known as ‘the Queen of ADR’ (alternative dispute resolution). It was Kingston, in fact, who introduced family law arbitration training to England and Wales. The Spear’s 2016 Family Lawyer of the Year is highly regarded for her handling of complex and often international financial issues for HNWs. In the past year, she has advised an HNW family on legal issues involving money and children, and worked on numerous big divorces, prenups, mediations and arbitrations. Her clients include hedge fund owners, celebrities and footballers. Litigation, she says, is something ‘I genuinely love — it hones your skills’.
