Ben Parry-Smith

Spear's Review

Once described as the ‘protégé’ of Fiona Shackleton, Ben Parry-Smith joined Payne Hicks Beach on qualification and made partner in 2018.

The Oxford graduate specialises in a range of matters relating to family law. This includes cohabitation disputes, pre and post nuptial agreements, divorce/civil partnership, relocation of children, complex financial disputes and jurisdictional issues. Most notably, Parry-Smith was part of the team representing Princess Haya in her high-profile divorce from Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.  

He tells Spear's that over the last year, he has 'been busy doing an increasing amount of children and abduction work alongside his usual diet of HNW and international divorce/financial remedy work'.
