Hunters’ Family Department featured in Spear’s Magazine

Hunters’ prominent Family Department has been featured in Spear’s Magazine, Issue May-June 2019.

“If Hunters is on the other side of a case it will be handled efficiently and with settlement in mind,” says Henry Hood, family department head at the firm.

The firm is known for its landed estates side, but trust litigation specialist Richard Kershaw notes that it’s a relatively small proportion of its matrimonial work. “Family lawyers are the last general practitioners,” says Kershaw.

Indeed, partner Hetty Gleave also has a thriving art practice. She observes: “We attract a lot of first-generation wealth, but the nature of the practice as a whole means that we deal frequently with issues of pre-acquired and inherited assets.”

Henry and fellow partners Jo Carr-West and Hazel Wright are accredited mediators. Hazel is also an active collaborative lawyer and is well connected to the therapeutic world.

Jay Patel joined the firm in 2018 from Shoosmiths, and regularly acts in high-end cases.

Senior Associate Amy Scollan has a remarkable international practice and sits on Resolution’s Brexit Working Party.

Associate Nicole Derham is qualified in Ireland and New York, and has a strong banking law background.

Home-grown talent includes Alexandra Baggallay, who regularly holds her own against the most sophisticated opponents, and Rebecca Christie, a talented junior who is coming up fast.
