3PB Direct

In particular, I’m known for my work as a barrister in divorce, separation, maintenance, inheritance and probate disputes.

How much experience do you have in this area?

I have over 5 years’ experience in financial disputes within the Family Courts and in settling cases outside them as well.

How would you describe your approach to working with clients?

I offer a principled, interest-focused approach to negotiations, whether at a hearing, mediation or through correspondence. I understand that the key to a successfully negotiated outcome is achieving an outcome that satisfies both parties’ interests. I pursue that goal with compassion, focus and issue-centric advocacy.

I’m known for my approachable, calm, confident manner, able to put you the client at ease: using the skills I acquired in my previous life before I was a barrister, when I worked in the music and entertainment industry.

Legal Expertise

As a specialist in family finance, I can also offer practical advice and detailed preparation and cross-examination of your former partner in all aspects of financial work. I’ve got experience in cases where there are assets (up to £20 million), trust assets, business interests, intervening parties, a foreign or jurisdictional element, estates and also where there are aspects of conduct or asset dissipation (where assets are intentionally wasted or used up) before or within the proceedings.

I frequently advise on a case through from FDA to Final Hearing. I’m comfortable advising on enforcement actions, setting aside consent orders and intervener actions. I’m happy to draft all documents required in financial remedies/divorce matters, including questionnaires, schedules of deficiency, offer letters & interim applications.

I also handle cases involving inheritance provision, TOLATA (where claims to property or the family home are sought by a cohabitee) and Schedule 1 Children Act Claims (claims which tend to arise when cohabiting parties separate).

I’m known for my down-to-earth, practical and pragmatic approach to cases as well as deft client care skills. I approach all matters knowing that his clients are experiencing one of the most difficult times of their lives and endeavours to ease their burden with an easy rapport and clear advice.
