Practice Areas

James is head of the firm's four partner family team. With over 35 years' experience in the field of family law, his specialisations include: separation and divorce, complex financial proceedings, children, and pre and post - marital agreements. James' recent reported cases include acting for the wife in the case of KA v MA (prenuptial agreement: needs) [2018] EWHC 499 (Fam), concerning the extent to which a court should uphold the terms of a pre-nuptial agreement. Taking into account all of the circumstances of the case, the Court largely overturned the pre-nuptial agreement, on the basis that it failed to meet the wife's reasonable needs and provided the wife with an award well in excess of the provision in the agreement. James also acted for the wife in the High Court case of WM v HM [2017] EWFC 25, involving arguments relating to pre-marital wealth and special contribution and in the Court of Appeal in Martin v Martin [2018] EWCA Civ 2866, to address the valuation of shares in a private company and to determine non-marital wealth.
