Ruth qualified in 1982 and in 1986 became a partner heading the litigation department in a large central London practice undertaking both private client and commercial litigation. She has acted in many high profile and complex cases often with an international dimension. Ruth has specialised in family law since 1990, when she also trained as a mediator. She has since trained as a collaborative lawyer. From 1991-1993 she headed the family law department of a central London firm, and left there to set up a niche family law practice, which later merged to create Bross Bennett LLP. She deals with complex financial and multi jurisdictional cases, many involving children and has particular expertise in cases involving leave to remove children from the jurisdiction.
Clients value her extraordinary tenacity, strategic approach, incisive intelligence, and firm, practical style and commend her on her sound accurate and timely advice.
Chambers and Partners say ‘Her professional yet personable style is one of the best I’ve come across. Her support was invaluable throughout my case’. ‘Clever, effective, no nonsense and sensible’.
“Ruth certainly knows how to take the chore out of the law. She handled my divorce with straight talk and simplicity, making even the toughest detail possible to swallow”
“The amount of time and care you have given to me is unbelievable and much much appreciated! There are no words to describe how happy we all are with the outcome”
