Top Recommended Family Lawyers
Five years as a barrister before joining Farrer & Co in 2011 gave Nicholas Bennett a grounding in family disputes. Solving ‘complex divorces’ is a specialism – these can feature jurisdictional conflicts, the unravelling of company structures or trusts, or liquidity issues. Bennett is currently handling a divorce involving complicated trustee-beneficiary relationships, and advising on prenups. His specialisms can converge: ‘The complexity in the divorce might be that they signed a prenup a long time ago and one of them wants to get out of it.’ Bennett predicts more arguments on whether existing nuptial agreements can be undermined or tightened up.
