Our Family and Divorce Partner, Claire Edgar has been appointed by Northern Ireland Central Authority to the International Children Law Panel of Solicitors.

This is a Panel of solicitors experienced in International children cases and specifically child abduction cases brought under the Hague Convention.

On her appointment, Claire comments:

I am delighted to be appointed to the Panel. There is no doubt that the world is becoming a smaller place and the influx of people coming to Northern Ireland from other countries, coupled with our own ability to move abroad freely, means that children cases with an international dimension are increasingly common. This area of law is particularly complex and challenging given the application of international case law and the narrow interpretation of the available defences under the Hague Convention.”
