    Our directors

    Hopkin Murray Beskine is led by four directors and has a strong team of solicitors, trainee solicitors, paralegals and support staff.

    Director and senior solicitor Ann Bevington specialises in housing and public law. Ann has expertise both in complex housing cases and in judicial review, from the County Court to the Supreme Court, meaning she is very well placed to provide comprehensive and holistic advice and representation. She has an excellent reputation for her work defending possession proceedings and acting in unlawful eviction cases and disrepair claims, and frequently advises in homeless cases. She is the co-author of the current edition of ‘Defending possession proceedings’ (Legal Action Group), the leading guide to law and practice for those facing possession claims.

    Director and senior solicitor Lesley Curtis is recognised as an outstanding individual in the field of housing law, and is particularly sought out for her expertise in disrepair and property litigation. She assists tenants experiencing serious disrepair problems, and acts in possession cases and other housing and property disputes. Lesley has a reputation for conducting litigation with tenacity, flair and legal prowess and is known for her excellent judgment and exceptional commitment to her clients. She offers ‘no win no fee’ funding arrangements (Conditional Fee Agreements) in appropriate cases.

    Director and senior solicitor Serena Sandhu is experienced in all areas of family law. Her work encompasses handling disputes stemming from divorce and separation, including those with complex assets and contested jurisdictions. Serena is skilled in representing parents and grandparents in cases concerning child arrangements, especially those involving domestic abuse, high conflict, and international relocation. She also has expertise in drafting prenuptial, postnuptial, and cohabitation agreements. Additionally, Serena is adept at securing emergency injunctions and protective orders for her clients.

    Director and senior solicitor Sara Upton specialises in public law children cases. She undertakes the majority of her own advocacy and represents parents, extended family members, children’s guardians, and children. Sara deals with complex cases involving non-accidental injury, sexual abuse, domestic abuse, alcohol and drug dependency and female genital mutilation (FGM). She regularly represents vulnerable clients with mental health or learning difficulties, as well as clients who require the use of an interpreter. Sara has also been instructed by the Official Solicitor in cases where her clients have been assessed as lacking capacity to conduct litigation independently.
