Nick is a barrister specialising in family (finance and children). He has a particular interest in cases with a foreign element, including under the Hague Convention; the international relocation of children and finance cases with offshore assets.

Nick is seen as an “expert on international child relocation” having been involved in numerous cases both seeking and opposing the relocation of a child, including in the Court of Appeal. 

Nick has appeared in the Supreme Court twice (once without a leader) in cases relating to the Hague Convention and jurisdictional issues relating to the enforcement of European custody orders. He has also appeared in Hague Convention cases many times in the Court of Appeal, often appearing against leading counsel. 

Nick is often involved in high value money cases, including in 2017 acting for the wife in a 15 day final hearing in the High Court involving offshore trusts, foreign properties, dissipation of assets and allegations of conduct.

Nick has been recommended in Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners for both children and financial work, regarded as an “excellent advocate who is calm and unflappable and always spot-on with his advice”.
