Collaborative Resolution Ltd T/A Painless Divorce:

Adriana has set up the UK’s first multi-disciplinary collaborative team to support couples and families through divorce.  Painless Divorce is a new client-led process that is quicker, more cost effective and more respectful than traditional divorce or mediation, and ensures that separating partners do not go to court. It brings together collaboratively trained solicitors, accountants and psychologists who give advice while allowing the couple to come to their own resolution. Adriana is highly trained in dispute resolution and has brought best practice from Australia to the UK. For further information visit:

Interests and Hobbies


Adriana is a founding partner of charity Kids in the Middle, supporting the children of separating parents. In her spare time she enjoys walking, her walking boots and camera are always to hand. She’s rediscovering the fun of cycling – on a trike! She love most types of music, from early English chamber music, choral masses to traditional folk music, jazz and rock, but general steers away from 19th century orchestral sounds. She rings the odd church bell, but not often enough to be well practiced! Finally when she isn’t with friends she designs hats and has just finished renovating a cottage and designing an 18th century cottage garden. She was partly brought up in England and Northern Italy and has enough Italian to get by!
