Top Recommended Family Lawyers
Praise abounds for Julian Ribet. ‘A boy wonder grown into Superman!’ one contemporary tells us. A QC dubs him ‘an extremely able, top-rank practitioner’, while another refers to the LMP partner as ‘impressive, diligent and practical’.
Ribet’s clients include an impressive number of international HNWs and City professionals. He has built his reputation on the back of his ability to trace substantial business and family assets, and also for his mastery regarding complex points of inherited wealth, tax, pensions and offshore trusts in the divorce context. He is known for the widely publicised 2012 case AC v DC, in which Ribet was instrumental in unwinding an intricate overseas transaction which the husband had set up to stymie his client’s financial claims. The case resulted in the largest sum (£54 million) set aside into a trust.
His career has also included his successful representation of the wife in US v SR (2014), in which instance the husband committed serious fraud and non-disclosure of over $845,000.
Ribet is also known for his ‘ambition and loads of energy’ in tackling children issues. A peer commends his strength in alternative dispute resolutions, with Ribet’s skills in both the mediation and arbitration contexts winning praise.
