Rosemary Sharp heads the family law practice at Lester Aldridge. She is an experienced lawyer who advises clients on divorce and matrimonial finance matters, as well as private children law.

"Rosie has a lovely, vibrant personality that clients warm to."Close quote

Rosemary advises on a wide range of clients on all aspects of private family law. Her work predominantly focuses on divorce, financial claims arising on divorce, businesses and complex income arrangements, farming assets, armed forces personnel, landed estates and Trusts. Rosemary’s work also includes private children matters, contact & residence and financial provision for children following an unmarried relationship breakdown. She also regularly advises on wealth protection issues such as prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.

Rosemary’s approach and strategy is always tailored to each individual client and focuses on what they want to achieve. Where possible she always tries to find a pragmatic solution for clients. If a court application is necessary, her advice is robust and practical.

Rosemary trained at a firm specialising in private client matters and upon qualification in 2010 joined their family team. She subsequently moved to join the family team at Lester Aldridge in 2017, and has led the team since May 2020.

Recent examples of work or case studies:

  • Negotiating the terms of a prenuptial agreement which involved French assets.  I acted for an English client whose fiancé was French. The parties were living in England at the time but were considering relocating to France in the future. I liaised closely with French lawyers to ensure the prenuptial agreement would be appropriate and enforceable in both jurisdictions.
  • Acted for a husband in divorce and financial remedy proceedings.  The husband was focused on protecting his family business and there were significant issues surrounding the value of the husband’s shares. We were able to reach a settlement which did not involve the sale of the husband’s shares and the lower value was attributed to his shares for the purposes of negotiation.
  • Acted for a mother and successfully obtained a prohibited steps order preventing the children’s father from removing them from the jurisdiction. We went on to agree a child arrangements order with limited contact to minimise the risk of abduction and creative safeguards to ensure the children would remain in England.
