Henry Hood - Hunters Law LLP

Within: Family

Hunters Law LLP has particular strength in complex and high-value financial work. As well as its work in the heavyweight financial cases the team is also known for its private children work. It routinely undertakes complex work such as advising on child abduction (Hague and non-Hague), wardship and high-conflict cross-border work. Henry Hood heads the team and has been accredited for many years as a Resolution specialist in advanced financial provision and private children law. Hood has also more recently become accredited as a mediator by the Law Society and is, in addition, a collaborative lawyer. Richard Kershaw’s cases often draw on his expertise in trusts, overseas assets and property ownership while Hetty Gleave specialises in complex financial and children work. The team was pleased to add Jay Patel to its ranks from Shoosmiths LLP.
