Charles is a family law barrister at 4PB with particular expertise in finance and property on divorce, finance for children and children’s arrangements after parental separation. He is regularly instructed in high asset circumstances, international family disputes, relocation and child abduction cases. Charles has a reputation for dealing with the most complex cases involving financial disputes as well as intractable and alienated parent cases, vulnerable adult/child cases and also cases arising out of same sex or alternative family disputes.

As one of the very few recognised silks in both matrimonial finance and children work, Charles is often instructed to advise clients about all issues arising from their separation, and is a strong advocate for the collaborative process where appropriate. He conducts private FDRs in finance cases, and Early Neutral Evaluations in children cases.

Chambers & Partners 2015 says of Charles, “When he speaks people are drawn to what he says; he’s a very persuasive and powerful advocate. His bedside manner is great, and he captures the trust of a client instantly.”
