Annabel Hayward

Annabel qualified as a solicitor in 1998, and has practiced in family law ever since with particular specialist in cases involving complex finances. She was delighted to join specialist practice Hawkins Family Law in April 2014, and is now a Director, having spent the previous eleven years as a Senior Associate at Taylor Vinters in Cambridge and London.

Annabel is collaboratively trained as a family lawyer, she is a family mediator and is a Resolution Specialist in cases involving substantial assets (including pre-nuptial agreements), and those involving cohabitees. The Legal 500 comments that the team at Hawkins are ‘exemplary’ and describes Annabel as ‘striking a good balance between empathising and successfully navigating divorce cases’ and ‘a pragmatic lawyer with a cool head’. Her strong reputation is built around negotiating tailor-made financial settlements, where possible out of court, and at an early juncture.

Alongside client work, Annabel is regional Press Officer for the Milton Keynes’ branch of Resolution and sits on Resolution’s national Cohabitation Working Party which campaigns to secure legal recognition for cohabitants. She is a contributor to the legal and national media on family issues, and lives in Bedford.
