Yasmin Khan-Gunns is an award-winning divorce and family associate based in our London office.
Her experience includes divorce, financial remedies on divorce, disputes about children, applications to relocate abroad with children, and wealth protection agreements. She also has experience in property disputes between cohabiting couples, international surrogacy, applications for a parental order and domestic abuse.
Yasmin practices in all areas of family law, but many of her cases are complex and international, with very high stakes. She particularly specialises in the division of finances on divorce. Such cases involve wealth in the region of GBP 4-60 million, wherein assets are located in multiple jurisdictions. This includes overseas pensions, complex income and bonus structures.
She works with a wide variety of clients. Her previous cases have included successful professionals, celebrities, other lawyers, stay-at-home mothers and ‘silver separators’ over the age of 70.
Yasmin also has extensive experience in drafting cohabitation, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements. She regularly advises clients when they or their partner live in another jurisdiction. To date, she has worked with clients with connections to Thailand, Lithuania, Argentina, Spain, Italy, Poland, France and Greece.
In her spare time, Yasmin writes blogs and articles and delivers presentations on family law matters. She has contributed to several notable publications from Women's Health Magazine to The Family Law Journal. Others include Today’s Family Lawyer, Bordier UK, Support Through Court, ePrivateClient, Mintr, Divorced Parents and Single Mums Club. She also runs a legal Instagram page under the name of @londonfamilysolicitor, and mentors aspiring family solicitors and barristers.
In the Legal 500 2020, Yasmin was described as a ‘key lawyer’. Valued for her talents, she has also received several awards throughout her career. Among them are:
