Stuart is a caring and experienced solicitor who has specialised in Family law since 2012. He is noted in the legal directories as being “Very competent, very capable and very pragmatic.” (Chambers 2020).
Stuart advises his clients on all aspects of relationship breakdown, including divorce, finances and private arrangements for children. As an active member of Resolution, and immediate past chair of the Oxford committee, he believes in taking a constructive approach to family law matters.
He recognises that an agreement that parties reach together can often be more effective than Court proceedings. He regularly drafts and negotiates Pre-Nups, separation agreements and cohabitation agreements as well as supporting clients who are going through mediation.
Stuart understands the complex financial and emotional issues clients may face when relationships break down. He therefore seeks to build strong connections with other professionals so as to support and protect his clients and their assets.
“He is cool, calm and collected and soothes the nerves of even the most anxious client. Alongside that he is extremely capable. A combination which must make him a nightmare opponent.” – Legal 500 2022
