James Ferguson

Spear’s Review

James Ferguson, a longtime partner and head of family at Boodle Hatfield, covers all aspects of family law, especially the consequences of relationship breakdown. He specialises in separation and divorce, civil partnership dissolution, financial proceedings, children matters, pre-marital/pre-civil partnership and separation agreements.

Ferguson crosses paths with his clients at the most difficult moments of their lives. His rapport with clients stems from his pragmatism and cool-headedness; he is described by peers as a ‘supreme strategist’.

‘As a family lawyer, I am very alert to the complexities and sensitivities of proceedings and always focus on finding an effective solution for my clients’ problems through strong technical know-how, experience and tenacity in getting the right result,’ he says.
