“Hazel is praised by clients for her warmth and conciliatory approach, but she is an incredibly robust litigator when required, and always fiercely protects the interests of her clients. She has an excellent head for figures and clients praise her “exceptional eye for forensic detail which is second to none”. She is frequently called upon to advise in situations where one party suspects assets have been hidden from view and has successfully traced significant sums in her previous cases.
