Julian is a leading expert in the financial repercussions of relationship breakdown. His work frequently has an international dimension, often involving tax and trust implications, substantial assets or incomes. His reputation is for ruthless efficiency and cutting to the chase, and for giving clients the answer from the very outset.
Julian has a market leading practice in negotiating pre-nuptial agreements, whether UK or international ones (often Anglo/US or Anglo/European). This is an area of practice which requires wisdom, direction, experience and tact. He also has considerable experience in disputes relating to children, both within and outside of the Court forum.
He frequently acts for (or against) household names, but his clients also include City professionals, entrepreneurs, those in the arts/media, financiers, the independently wealthy and their spouses/partners. He speaks fluent French, and consequently is a leader in the field of Anglo-French work. He deals a lot with cases involving the USA.
Julian is independently rated by Chambers & Partners as one of only five ‘Star Individuals’ practising family law. He headed up the firm’s family law practice for 9 years, until 2017.
He is considered one of the best family lawyers of his generation.
