Fisher may already have had a stream of international sports stars and high-value Russian clients beating a path to her door — the latter not appearing ‘to sleep or take holidays’, she says — but it was her performance in 2014’s groundbreaking Luckwell v Limata that saw her propelled into the limelight. In the ‘very difficult’ case, where a wife tried to defend the harsh terms of three pre-nups, Fisher helped the husband win a fairer settlement. The case also established ‘three, arguably four’ potentially important precedents, according to a leading QC.
