Chambers are delighted to announce that Jennifer Lee has been appointed as a Fee-Paid Judge of the First-tier Tribunal, assigned to the Tax Chamber.
Called to the Bar in 2007, Jennifer is a specialist family law practitioner. She has a thriving practice in family finance and has successfully represented high net worth clients in cases involving family businesses, inherited wealth, substantial pensions, nuptial agreements, and trusts. Many of her cases also involve domestic or international tax complications, foreign assets, and cross-jurisdictional issues, such as the validity or otherwise of an overseas marriage or divorce, or competing claims in multiple jurisdictions (including cases pertaining to Asia and Africa).
Over the years, Jennifer has also developed an interest in the Court of Protection, and leads our team of established practitioners in this field. She retains a practice in complex children law, including surrogacy/modern families.
Jennifer has appeared in a number of high-profile reported cases and continues to be top-ranked in the directories. She appears regularly for clients in arbitration, mediation and private FDRs, and sits as a private FDR Judge.
Oba Nsugbe QC, SAN said “We are absolutely delighted for Jennifer. She is the first from our set to have been appointed to this highly specialist area. The appointment is so well deserved, and a testament to her abilities and hard work in practice. We congratulate Jennifer and wish her every success in this new role which she will perform alongside her busy practice.”
