John has nearly 30 years’ experience of all aspects of matrimonial work, with an emphasis on the resolution of complex financial and child-related disputes, especially those with an international element. John is a trained collaborative lawyer.

Working closely with members of our private wealth team, John is frequently asked to advise in cases involving both onshore and offshore trusts. Increasingly he is engaged to negotiate and draft pre and post-marital agreements and advise on asset protection measures. He also has experience of advising on civil partnerships and related cohabitation and pre-civil partnership agreements.

John is also a member of the will and trusts disputes team and has a particular interest in claims brought against estates for financial provision under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.

John is an avid ice-skater, occasional rock climber and sometimes surfer.
