Boodle Hatfield family lawyers named as best in the UK

Boodle Hatfield’s James Ferguson and Katie O’Callaghan have been named as two of the country’s top divorce lawyers by Spear’s - the influential magazine for the world’s super rich.

Partner and head of Family James Ferguson is listed as a top recommended family lawyer where he is described as “very wise, very astute” by clients.

Senior Associate Katie O’Callaghan makes the rising star list where she is described as “bright and incisive…an undoubted partner and star of the future” by one barrister.

The guide highlights the complex nature of the cases James and Katie handle including a “ ‘fabulously difficult’ case involving illiquid assets tied to a spouse’s £400 million company. Another case centred on a prenup, signed pre-Radmacher, where the wording of the agreement was being questioned.”

Spear’s magazine is a bi-monthly publication aimed at an ultra high net worth audience. The magazine has been described as the “European rival to Forbes.”
