Maeve O'Higgins

Maeve joined Moon Beever as a partner in April 2015 to head up the firm's Family Law Department.

She brings to Moon Beever extensive experience of all aspects of family law, having often acted for HNWs (High Net Worth Individuals) or their partners in cases involving divorce, civil partnerships and related financial claims, disputes between cohabitees and same-sex couples regarding finance and property, and private law disputes involving children and cross-jurisdictional issues. Notably, she has acted for parents in respect of international leave to remove or relocate children to Hague and non-Hague Convention countries. In two separate cases in 2013 and 2014, Maeve successfully acted for mothers whose applications to relocate to the People's Republic of China were contested in the High Court.

She has particular expertise in dealing with prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, and has advised UHNWs (Ultra High Net Worth Individuals) with assets of £500 million or over.

An experienced family mediator and collaborative lawyer, Maeve has been featured as one of the top family lawyers in the annual Thomson Reuters Super Lawyers UK peer-reviewed lawyer rating service since it began in 2013.

She enjoys the arts - mainly theatre and music - and spending time with family and friends. An ideal weekend might involve reading a novel while sitting in the garden with a glass of wine, admiring the horticultural efforts of others!
