It’s common for many couples to live together, whether they plan to marry or with no intention of getting married…
I am a specialist family solicitor, with more than twenty years qualified experience. I have particular expertise in financial arrangements arising from relationship, marriage, and partnership breakdowns, which often involve a pension element. I have also gained experience in specific forces pension schemes but I represent a wide variety of clients from all sectors and areas. I am a Resolution member and have been a member of the Law Society Family Panel, recognising good practice in Family Law, since 2011.
I joined Hedges in 2023, following an eight year stint as Partner and Head of Family Law at a smaller firm, re-building and strengthening the Family department including the takeover of two separate firms. I moved to Hedges so I could focus on the client side of my work, which is what I enjoy – representing clients and helping them through one of the toughest times in their lives with solid advice and support.
Away from work I can be found in the gym or swimming pool, having rediscovered my love of fitness after lockdown. Having visited Venice on my honeymoon, I fell in love with it and have been back almost yearly ever since, exploring more and more areas as well as returning to our favourite haunts. I hold a long term ambition to retire there.
WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
"Ian was exactly the type of solicitor that I was looking for and his views aligned with mine making the whole experience as painless as it could have been. Ian was very prompt and detailed in his responses to the point of being proactive and anticipating the other side. In what was a very difficult case, I feel Ian facilitated the best possible outcome for me and certainly not one that I would have got from another sub par solicitor."
