Formerly a solicitor, Nick has specialised in family law, exclusively financial cases, for over 25 years. His current practice consists entirely of heavyweight ancillary relief matters with particular emphasis on divorces involving family-owned companies and farms. He is also one of the leading experts in the complex area of division of pensions in matrimonial breakdown. Nick works across the entire Western Circuit from Cornwall to the Midlands and is instructed by many of the solicitors listed in the Legal 500 for family work. Unusually for a barrister based in England, he also has a growing Welsh practice.
Called 1994; previously with Guildhall Chambers; prior to joining the Bar, worked as a solicitor. He has specialised in ancillary relief for over 25 years, while at the Bar and as a solicitor and partner in a Bristol-based firm.
