Department: Family

Who am I?

Salaried Partner and Head of the Family Department.

What I do

I work closely with departmental colleagues; between us we have a very wide range of family law experience offering a friendly and efficient service to all our clients.

I aim to offer my clients a practical, pragmatic and efficient route through the difficulties they face following relationship breakdown. I have nearly 30 years’ experience as a solicitor in Family Law and understand that clients need a clear understanding of the options for them and their families, along with the costs, so that they can move forward with confidence. My clients come, mainly by personal referral, from a wide range of backgrounds. Every family situation is different, and I enjoy the variety my working life brings.

I specialise in financial settlement, in divorce proceedings, following the breakdown of cohabitation or the dissolution of civil partnerships. I am a trained Collaborative Lawyer. I have a wide range of family work experience to include divorce, financial matters and children act proceedings. I also have experience in both Pre Nuptial Contracts and Post Nuptial Contracts.

My Achievements

I am a trained Collaborative Lawyer, Member of Resolution (First for Family Law), member of Sussex Family Solutions Group and a member of the Worthing Collaborative Law Pod. I was a Member of the Law Society Children Panel for a number of years. In the past I have worked as a Mediator and a Peer Reviewer in conjunction with the Legal Services Commission.

I am very proud to be recognised as a Leading Individual for the third consecutive year in The Legal 500 2022 and that my team have once again been ranked in the Directory.

I am also a Ranked Lawyer for Family (Brighton & Surrounds) in Chambers & Partners 2022.

"Susan Knight is astute and pragmatic. I have engaged several different family lawyers over a long and acrimonious divorce and Sue is by far and away the best. I completely trust her judgement, advice and above all I am confident that she has given me the most cost-effective advice I could have asked for. No prevarication. No grey. I would 100% recommend her to anyone going through the family court."

My hobbies and interests

I am married with two teenage children. I enjoy living in Brighton, and all the City has to offer.
