Thank you for the work you have done for me, Karen. I have very much appreciated your straightforward and transparent way of working.

Ms H of Cambridge

Karen’s experience is focused on high net worth individuals with significant company, property trust or pension assets. She also deals with all aspects of children matters including applications to remove from the jurisdiction. As a collaborative lawyer, Karen brings specialist resolution skills to her practice but is equally competent in a courtroom scenario.

Karen joined Barr Ellison in 2016 having headed up the Family Law Department for 15 years in her previous firm. Karen is a Resolution-accredited specialist in the areas of complex financial remedies and children.

I am glad I chose you to represent me. You have been great and very professional.

Ms Ball of Sandy

I have now received my copy of the Cohabitation Agreement. Thank you for representing my interests and for your excellent work.

Paul Paxton

Many, many thanks for achieving this, Karen. I never thought the divorce would be settled without going back to court. Thank you for your wise advice and support. I would recommend you without hesitation.

Jenny Chapman

Karen, thank you for your efficient, prompt attention to help us finalise this prenuptial agreement within a tight deadline.

Carole Lambert of Willingham

Karen Anker at Barr Ellison was superb - knowledgeable, supportive and able to provide strong leadership when needed. I highly recommend her.

Emma Windred

Thank you for all your work Karen. I would have no hesitation in recommending your practice to other potential clients.

Mr Barker of Alton

Thank you Karen Anker for your professionalism, your patience, your efficiency and your expertise over the last eight or so months. The thing I appreciated from our first meeting and why I was confident when instructing you was that you'd tell me straight what the situation was and what was realistic within the law and our situation rather than telling me what I might want to hear or sugar-coat it, and that continued right the way through the trickier times of negotiation. I probably cost myself a few hundred pounds more asking all my questions and trying to think through all the possibilities(!), but it was worth it to get something I'm comfortable with and you explained things and guided me through the whole process brilliantly.

Mr Gibbons

I found it a very good experience working with you, Karen, and I appreciated your manner in handling the issues that, frankly, I didn’t really want to deal with. You made it all very easy.

Mr Guyer of Cambridge

Many thanks, Karen, I really appreciate your help and support and I'm very pleased with the outcome.

Mr Jones of Kentford

Karen, I must record my gratitude to you and the other members of Barr Ellison staff who provided me with such efficient and sensitive help through this distressing and sleep-debilitating divorce.

Mr R of St Ives

I want to thank you so much, Karen, for your incredible efficiency, speed and professionalism. As always with Barr Ellison, I am overwhelmingly impressed.

Mrs Dorn

Thanks for all your help and guidance over the past few months, Karen.

Mrs O of Burwell

Exceptional, helpful, considerate and still professional.

Mrs S of Hemel Hempstead

Thank you, Karen, for all your help and advice in dealing with my divorce finances.

Mrs Waites of Huntingdon

I am glad I chose you to represent me. You have been great and very professional.

Ms Ball of Sandy

Thank you so much Karen for your professionalism, understanding and support. Your efficiency is wonderfully refreshing.

Ms Banks of Witchford

Thank you for all your help, Karen. I have been very conscious of you diligently pushing me forward in a world of corporate and childcare chaos my end (and I am deeply grateful). Thank you also for words of reason when my patience ran thin with my husband and his own solicitor.

Ms Denton of Braintree

Thank you for the work you have done for me, Karen. I have very much appreciated your straightforward and transparent way of working.

Ms H of Cambridge

You are marvellous, Karen. Thank you for all your brilliant hands-on guidance and laser-sharp advice.

R.M. of Cambridge

Thank you for sending through my copy of the final Pre-Nuptial Agreement and your invoice. I feel it is money well spent! Many thanks for your kindness and your efficiency Karen! You have helped me a great deal.

Mrs L of Cambridge
