It is with a heavy heart that we share the sad news that, having been ill for some time, Anne-Marie OBE QC (Hons) of Dawson Cornwell passed away.

Anne-Marie was our first Ambassador – a role she was passionate about and we hold so many fond memories of her commitment, support, generous and fun nature.

She was revered for her work on forced marriages, child abduction, FGM, surrogacy, spousal abandonment and honour related cases, here in the UK and globally. Her legacy will live on through her work and the countless lives she has saved and touched.

We are very humbled and blessed to have known this extraordinary lady, for whom no case was ever too complex or too small, she was a trailblazer of her time and always made time to support us and our clients. Her loss has left a void that will never be filled.

Anne-Marie leaves behind her children, Sam and Catherine and grandchild Emmiline. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and colleagues.
