For Hutchinson, law was almost a vocation. ‘I knew from a young age that I wanted a career in the law, having had my first “work experience” at Eversheds in Leeds at the age of twelve,’ she says. After graduating from Christ’s College, Cambridge, she joined Farrer as a trainee in 2005 and qualified in the family law team shortly after. Now a senior associate, Hutchinson focuses on a range of HNW family law, but is mostly interested in children work. She recently helped a father respond to a child internal relocation application and worked on an appeal to set aside a final financial order made in 2010, due to a client’s husband not providing ‘a full, frank and clear disclosure at the relevant time’.
