Bircham Dyson Bell further bolsters Family Team with senior lateral hire

Leading law firm Bircham Dyson Bell (BDB) is pleased to announce the appointment of David Thompson as a Partner in its Family Team. David joins BDB from Charles Russell Speechlys.

David’s practice encompasses a broad range of matrimonial disputes with a particular focus on complex financial and international matters; he has a wealth of experience in family law instructions with jurisdictional cross-border trust and company dimensions. Alongside his practice, David is the current Chair of the London Region of Resolution (the leading national organisation for family lawyers), and is also a member of the Cambridge Regional Committee. Working closely with the rest of BDB’s Family Team advising high net worth clients in matrimonial matters, David will divide his time between BDB’s London and Cambridge offices.

The Family Team at BDB is cited in one of the principal legal directories, Chambers & Partners 2018, for the ‘high quality of the service’ it provides. Working closely with the wider Tax, Trusts and Property Departments, the Family Team provides clients with a comprehensive service. The Team is particularly noted for its expertise in complex financial cases involving family trusts, businesses and international assets.

David Thompson, Partner at BDB, says of his appointment:

‘BDB is a dynamic firm and continues to go from strength to strength. It will be a privilege to contribute to BDB’s growth in both London and Cambridge. The firm’s emphasis on complex financial and international matrimonial disputes is a perfect fit for my practice and I look forward to offering the high quality advice that BDB’s clients expect.’

Andrew Smith, Managing Partner of BDB, comments:

‘I am delighted to welcome David Thompson to BDB as a Family Partner. David’s extensive experience aligns seamlessly with the Family Team’s expertise and he will be a valuable addition to the team. As a firm we continue to invest in key external hires as well as nurturing our internal talent.’
