    George Mathieson
    George has been involved in the field of pensions and divorce for 15 years, but for the past 12 years it has been his sole business interest, having established Mathieson Consulting Ltd for this purpose. He has acted as SJE in over 4,000 cases, and as a party expert in many others.  Perhaps rather worryingly, an increasing number of his instructions are in cases where he is asked to help solicitors who are being sued for professional negligence in historic divorce cases involving pensions. George has lectured extensively on the subject, and had many articles published. He was a founding member of the Multi-Disciplinary Pension Advisory Group, under the joint Chairmanship of Mr Justice Francis and HHJ Hess, which sought ways to improve and make more consistent, the treatment of pensions in divorce proceedings.

    Mena Ruparel
    Mena is a specialist family law solicitor and arbitrator with a portfolio career. She regularly writes, examines and trains on family law subjects. Mena is the co-author of the Unbundling Family Legal Services Toolkit, the author of the Matrimonial Finance Toolkit (2017) and the Matrimonial Finance Handbook (2020) published by the Law Society. Mena is also the editor of the Cilex family law manuals (levels 3 and 6) and supported distance learning materials. Mena will become co-chair of the Law Society family committee in September 2020; she is the Law Society representative on the Pension Advisory Group.

    Guy Foster
