Justin began his legal career in the City of London with Clifford Chance, where he specialised in capital markets work. In 1997, in search of a new challenge he joined Payne Hicks Beach in order to switch specialisation to family law.
In 2008 Justin and Harriet took the decision to found their own firm in order to develop their practice on an agile niche model. As senior partner Justin has led the development of the firm from an initial 3 fee earners to now 23 fee earners.
Justin acts for a diverse range of clients including some very well-known names. He is experienced in all areas of family law, and specialises in high value, complex financial settlements.
Too many of our competitors prolong litigation and increase costs by allowing their clients to hold unrealistic expectations. Justin’s advice is always direct and commercially astute. He goes straight to the unvarnished truth of the case as early as possible in order to get his clients a fair outcome at the minimum of trouble and expense.
Away from the law Justin loves to travel, ski and cook. At home in Wiltshire he enjoys running and being outdoors. He is married to Amelia between them they have four children. In his twenties and thirties Justin served 14 years in the Territorial Army.
