Dawn Goodman
Partner at Withers


Russia & CIS and the Middle East. She is tri-qualified (England & Wales, BVI and Eire) and acts in and advises on litigation spanning the whole range of trust and succession issues. Once a problem has arisen she advises on methods to defuse contention, risk mitigation and alternative dispute resolution as well as on proceedings if necessary, ranging from consensual or prophylactic litigation to the most hostile of cross-border and multi-jurisdiction cases.

Previously a divorce lawyer, she also advises trustees and beneficiaries caught up in divorce proceedings.

Having represented parties for many years in mediation, Dawn has been accredited as mediator by the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR).

Garnering her experience as a litigator and fiduciary for a UNHW family, Dawn advises families,  family offices and businesses, trustees and other power holders on governance and reduction and management of fiduciary risk. She applies her understanding of conflicts of laws, geopolitical risk,

family tensions and succession to wealth and businesses to help clients create or restructure robust trust and succession vehicles with sufficient flexibility to continue through to succeeding generations.
