The Partners of Hunters Solicitors are delighted to announce that Jay Patel has joined the firm as a Partner in the Family Department. With over 20 years’ experience in both international and domestic divorce, Jay has an extensive understanding of high net worth divorce. As such he is used to dealing with cases involving substantial assets to include corporate interests, trusts and off shore assets. Nuptial and cohabitation agreements form a significant part of his practice.

Jay also brings to Hunters considerable and long experience in children work, both here and abroad. His domestic cases involve child arrangement orders and other s.8 issues. His international work includes child abduction and applications for leave to remove children permanently abroad.

Jay’s clients are drawn from all walks of life, and include individuals prominent in business, media and sport, and he works closely with the Iranian and Indian communities.

Jay is an experienced litigator, and court-based work forms the bulk of his practice. However, he knows the advantages that Dispute Resolution can have, and seeks a negotiated resolution wherever that is possible. He is a qualified family mediator with Resolution (of which he is a longstanding member), and the range of his work includes assisting couples through mediation in relation to both financial and child related issues

In 2016, Jay participated in a live Divorce Law Roundtable for Corporate Livewire, and in the same year was voted International Divorce Lawyer by Corporate Livewire. He has also published articles in Family Law Journal and Tempus Magazine. Jay is listed in the Private Client: Family section of Legal 500, and highlighted for “supporting clients every step of the way”.

Jay, said: “I am delighted to be joining the Family team at Hunters and am greatly looking forward to working with my new colleagues who have such a wide experience and expertise in this area of practice. As leaders in the private client arena, the firm provides exciting prospects for future development, as well as great overlap with my existing practice.”

Henry Hood, Partner and Head of the Family Department, commented: “We are very pleased to welcome Jay to Hunters. He is a highly respected Family law practitioner, and with his knowledge and experience in this area, and particularly his expertise in complex financial claims both here and abroad, he will be a valuable addition to the team.”
