Practice Areas

Julian is independently rated by Chambers as one of only five ‘Star Individuals’ practising family law. He focuses on divorce and family law, and is one of the country's leading experts 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 cutting to the chase, and for giving clients the answer from the very outset. He is described as 'wise, calm and extremely bright, pragmatic, academically strong and firm where necessary'. He speaks fluent French, and consequently does a good deal of Anglo-French work. He also deals a lot with cases involving the rest of Europe and the USA. Julian has a market leading practice in negotiating pre-nuptial agreements, whether UK or international ones. This is an area which requires wisdom, direction, the benefit of experience and tact. He also has wide experience in disputes relating to children. Julian has been interviewed regularly on BBC1, Sky News, CNN, Radio 4 and Bloomberg to comment on domestic and international family law topics and he is frequently quoted in the national and international press.
