Elizabeth Wyatt


Partner in the private client team

My role

I am a partner who heads up the private client team, which specialises in advising professionals, and people in business, in and around the Midlands. I am a member of Resolution and vice chair of Relate, Birmingham. I am also one of the recommended solicitors for The Grandparents’ Association.

My main area of expertise is in advising people in divorce proceedings, when their financial claims are complex or high in value.

My experience

I am a divorce lawyer and I’ve been working with matrimonial clients in and out of court for over 25 years, and have been described by peers as extremely competent and a safe pair of hands. My pragmatic, supportive and down-to-earth approach has resulted in the majority of my clients being referred by personal recommendation.

I’m ranked as a “notable practitioner” by Chambers and Partners 2017 for family and matrimonial, where clients comments included “an utterly fantastic solicitor” and “a leader in the industry”, with one client was particularly happy with the “very thorough and yet easy to understand analysis of why my options were”.

Chambers has also listed me as being “experienced, firm and clear – she fought hard and I knew I could rely on her integrity“, “passionate about what she does” and “gives individual attention to each case.
