    Transparency and Anonymity in Financial Remedy Proceedings

    Transparency and Anonymity in Financial Remedy Proceedings

    Simon Purkis of Pump Court Chambers joins host Mark Ablett to talk through the recent move away from anonymity in financial remedy proceedings, at least before certain judges as well as the forthcoming report of the Transparency Implementation Group. Simon covers the law in broad detail as well as giving his views on where the burden should lie in terms of anonymity. This is an evolving area and there will be a follow up podcast dealing with the report of the Transparency Implementation Group once received.

    HHJ Hess on the Financial Remedies Court & PAG2

    HHJ Hess on the Financial Remedies Court & PAG2

    In a really exciting episode, HHJ Hess joins co-hosts Helen Brander and Tara Lyons to talk all things financial remedies court and the upcoming PAG2. It was a real privilege to have His Honour join the podcast to provide his unique insight from the vanguard of financial remedies reform, including the origins of the FRC, and of course into pensions having given the well-known judgment in the case of W v H [2020] EWFC B10. A must listen for any financial remedies practitioners.

    NFTs in family law

    NFTs in family law

    A recent talk to the IBA conference in Miami mandated that all lawyers must be familiar with cryptocurrency, and that surely must include NFTs or non-fungible tokens. Sound like gibberish? Well look no further, because Samara Brackley of Pump Court will tell you all about them and how the court is likely to treat NFTs on divorce. A cutting edge episode that we should all be listening to.

    Cazalet v Abu-Zalaf

    Cazalet v Abu-Zalaf

    Host Mark Ablett is joined by Sara Hannell, managing partner of Alexiou Fisher Phillips solicitors, to talk about her very recent case of Olga Cazalet v Walid Abu-Zalaf [2022] EWFC 119. This is a fascinating case where the applicant wife sought to rescind a 9 year old Decree Nisi on the basis of alleged reconciliation, in order to ultimately benefit from better terms under a pre-nuptial agreement. The judgment involves a trawl through 160 years of law before forming a definitive test to apply. Sara offers her unique insight, from the heart of the case, as to the reasoning behind the judgment and the issues which arose. In the judgment, Mostyn J also comments about the perils of placing emphasis on witness demeanour and Sara gives her views as to the comments generally and where they lie in the context of this case. A most interesting listen!

    Menopause in the law

    Menopause in the law

    Following hot on the heels of World Menopause Day, Tara Lyons is joined by Imogen Robins of Pump Court and Jennifer Williamson, partner at Blake Morgan, to discuss the menopause generally and how it affects women working in the law. The podcast goes on to discuss the impact of menopause in family proceedings. This is an important topic that we all need to understand better and about which we should be speaking more openly. In furtherance of this, Imogen will be starting morning cafés with Jennifer to encourage open conversation and interested listeners should watch out for announcements on social media.

    Coercive and controlling behaviour (together and separately!)

    Coercive and controlling behaviour (together and separately!)

    Catherine Ellis joins host Mark Ablett to discuss coercive behaviour, controlling behaviour and coercive controlling behaviour in the context of private children proceedings. Catherine talks Mark through how we define and identify such behaviour, noting the frequent difficulties for victims in doing so. In circumstances where the guidance is far from definitive, Catherine gives her expert view on how to plead and build a case involving controlling and coercive behaviour, whilst also explaining why we need to take it quite so seriously. An important listen for any practitioners encountering such allegations.

Incredibly useful

I love these podcasts and have been working my way through them in readiness for a return to work after a long time off. So nice to hear some familiar voices too. I’m looking forward to hearing from John Chapman!

Essential listening for lawyers and clients

Just finished the “Non-discloser” podcast. As with most podcasts, I was planning on listening to this as I was on the move. I then realised how useful the content was and so I stopped, went back to the beginning and took notes! Perfect length for a podcast and great content.
