With over 12 years' experience in family law, Lyon will focus on complex financial settlements and children matters. She provides wealth protection advice, including prenuptial agreements, and often works for clients with international assets.

She also represents parents following relationship breakdown and is building her practice in relation to surrogacy law.

Lyon, who joins from Simpson Millar where she was head of family for the London region, is a member of Resolution and the membership development officer for the South West London Resolution Committee.

Head of the family team Kim Beatson commented: 'We are delighted to welcome Fiona to the team. She brings with her a wealth of experience to the firm and will be instrumental in strengthening our family law offering. I look forward to working with her to further build on our leading reputation.'

Lyon joined the firm virtually during lockdown. She will be based in London Bridge.
