Speaker: Ann Tayo

In this essential seminar, Great James Street’s Ann Tayo uses her years of front-line experience to discuss Article 10 of Council Regulation (EC) No 2201/2003 of 27 November 2003 dealing with child abduction. Ann explains the complexities of this area, simplifying the technicalities of the European law and its relation to UK law.  

Relevant law

Article 10 of Council Regulation (EC) No 2201/2003 of 27 November 2003

Sections 1 – 3 of the Family Law Act 1986

SS v MCP [2020] EWHC 2971 (Fam)

Qualified to practice in England, Wales and Nigeria, Ann earnestly believes that every case deserves a confident, attentive barrister in order to achieve justice. Her unique approach has afforded her the opportunity to steer justice in the right path by seeking to ensure that justice is not merely seen to be done, but is in truth actually done.

Ann spent more than 12 years prosecuting cases on behalf of the Crown Prosecution Service and Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs and has defended in the Court of Appeal, High Court, the Crown Court and Magistrates’ Courts.

Ann is adept at dealing with complex family matters that require an in-depth analysis and translation to support the rationale behind both the behaviour and the actual events that have taken place within family disputes. Ann is instructed in child arrangement proceedings, drafting effective undertakings and prohibitive steps, non-molestation and occupation and ex parte applications.
