Fourteen (Fourteen)

Work Department

Ancillary relief; private law children; public law children.

Position

Michael has had another fantastic year. Successful three times in the COA in the ground breaking anonymity case (Norman [2017]EWCACiv49) and in setting aside 5 years of punitive orders including committal order made in absentia (Iqbal [2017]EWCACiv19). He successfully defended a sham trust case (leading Rachael Cassidy (NDvSD [2017]EWHC1507)). Michael also won in an ambitious TOLATA claim following a Belgium divorce (Gaspar v Zaleski & Ors [2017]EWHC1770(Ch)).

Prior to his call to the Bar, Michael worked in finance for five years, qualified as a commercial solicitor specialising in IP law before crossing to the family Bar in 1998. Michael practises a wide range of family work including financial remedy, trusts and cohabitation disputes and Children Act work. He specialises in cases which have an added dimension such as trusts, bankruptcy, partnerships and companies. He has many reported financial remedy cases and frequently represents parents involved in disputes including those with an international element such as relocation cases and those involving serious abuse. As a result of his experience, both prior to being called to the Bar, and whilst at it, Michael brings a breadth of experience to his work.  In recognition of his talents, he was appointed QC this year.
