Emma Patel

Managing partner

Emma Patel is the Managing Partner of Rosewood Solicitors. Emma has over 10 years’ experience as a specialist matrimonial solicitor.

When Emma established the firm, she felt that solicitors needed to modernise the way they work so that they can spend more time focusing on the needs of the client. She wanted to ensure that the clients feel comfortable with their solicitor without worrying that they will be spending thousands of pounds if they were to pop in for a chat or pick up the phone to speak to their solicitor.

Emma has a wealth of experience, dealing with a variety of different cases, for a wide range of clients. Emma is well versed in negotiating complex financial settlements as well as day to day financial disputes and deals with all divorce transactions, both large and small. She is also experienced in cases with complex cross border disputes, pre-nuptial agreements, expatriate divorces as well as those that require an in-depth analysis of complex asset structures. She has a particular specialism in the drafting of living together and pre-nuptial agreements as well as separation agreements.

In addition to her mainstream family law practice, she has a keen interest in a niche specialism in Islamic Family law, providing solutions which are compatible with English law.

Most of Emma’s cases have settled without the need to go to a final hearing saving considerable legal fees for clients. This has been possible because Emma has been able to draw on her substantial experience to achieve the most sensible and cost-effective solution for her clients.

Emma is recognised for her personable and down to earth approach and her clients hold her in high regard. Her ability to immediately put clients at ease and grasp the issues which are important to the client, means that her clients have immense trust and confidence in her.

Emma Patel is a member of Resolution and advocates the use of conciliation where possible but equally, will take a robust stance on behalf of her client where necessary to ensure the best result is achieved for her client.

Excellent service, dealt promptly with all the matters at hand and kept me updated throughout. Highly recommended!

Emma was very easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable. The service I received was brilliant and I would definitely recommend Rosewood Solicitors to my family and friends. Excellent client service.

Emma was extremely helpful throughout the process of drafting our legal documents and always happy to answer my many questions along the way! I would highly recommend Rosewood to anyone seeking legal advice

Emma was really helpful, friendly and approachable. I knew that if I had a question, she was happy to help or answer it as soon as possible.

Emma Patel is a first rate solicitor - she gives her honest assessment in an empathetic and caring way, even when it wasn't what I wanted to hear. I hope to not need her services again but if I should I would have no hesitation in calling or recommending her.

My children and I used Rosewood Solicitors in a domestic abuse situation. They completely accepted and understood our situation and couldn't have done a better job in carrying out our wishes exactly as we wanted. We are so happy with the whole service we received from all staff members, we are very grateful.

Emma was very friendly, efficient and professional. She was willing to advise and fight for what was fair. In hindsight, the outcome was a great one in a very flawed system.

I would be more than happy to recommend Emma and her team to anyone who needs the service of a solicitor. She set realistic expectations from the start and was a great support throughout.
