In April 2019, Suzanne Kingston made the move from Withers to Mills & Reeve – and Jo Grandfield, her new firm’s head of family, is certain the addition of Kingston will take her team ‘to another level’.
Kingston’s ability to manage some of the most financially complex and international cases is well known in the family law sphere. She recently co-ordinated advice from five countries to successfully negotiate a prenuptial agreement protecting assets worth over £2 billion. ‘She’s a really tough negotiator,’ says one commentator, ‘but constructive and unfailingly pleasant to deal with.’
Dubbed ‘the queen of arbitration’, she has three decades of experience. No wonder, then, that Mills & Reeve is thrilled to have her on board to drive forward its dispute resolution offering.
