Advocate Barbara Corbett

Hanson Renouf is delighted to announce that Advocate Barbara Corbett, Partner and Head of Family Law, has qualified as a Family Arbitrator; she is the first and only one in Jersey.

Family Arbitration is a process in which you place the decision making in the hands of an Arbitrator who is the equivalent of a Judge, but doesn’t involve you having to issue Court proceedings. There are several advantages of using an Arbitrator: you can ask the Arbitrator to deal with all of the issues arising from your family breakdown or alternatively limit his/her involvement to one or two specific aspects; the process is completely confidential; you will get a final decision much more quickly and it is more cost effective than going through the Court process.

Barbara is committed to helping people to resolve their family law problems and disputes in an amicable and conciliatory manner; she already offers a dynamic variety of collaborative law, mediation and traditional court based solutions, and the addition of arbitration to the services she is able to offer is further proof of her commitment.

There isn’t a one-size fits all approach to finding a solution after separating from a partner, and so throughout the months of January and February, Hanson Renouf has been offering people a chance to talk through and explain their situation with a specialist family lawyer who could then inform them of the different options that are available.

The appointment-only information sessions will continue to be held until the end of February in the Hanson Renouf offices at 12 Hill Street and will take place each Thursday evening between the hours of 5.30pm and 7pm.

To book one of the half-hour appointments please telephone Jamie-Lee on 767764 or email We ask anyone attending one of the appointments to consider making a £5.00 donation to the firm’s chosen charity, Brighter Futures, a charity which helps families.

Hanson Renouf is a law firm in Jersey with litigation and family law at its core however we also offer individual and business clients a wide range of other practice areas, including employment law, professional negligence, property services, wills and probate, and other private client services.
