James Stewart

Spear's Review

James Stewart of Penningtons Manches Cooper has a formidable record of getting results in even the most difficult of cases. He describes his role as bringing ‘real added value’ to complex financial cases, applying a creative and solution-oriented approach. ‘I focus on securing a fair settlement from the very outset – and complexity should never be a bar to an early settlement,’ he adds.

He tells Spear's he wants clients to ‘feel at ease’ that they will receive the benefit of a service which is ‘second to none’. His approach is friendly but professional, and he has a proven track record of helping even the most contentious of cases find fair solutions, particularly where children are involved.

He was Chambers High Net Worth family lawyer of the year in 2018 and remains one of the leading practitioners in the field.

Adviser Profile

James, who is widely regarded as 'one of the most visible faces in UK family law', is a Visiting Professor at Ulster University and General Editor of the 'Blue Book', the definitive comparative guide to international family law. A fellow of the IAFL, and a Resolution accredited specialist, James shines in difficult cases that need strategic vision and a motivated team. 

James' recently reported cases include AG v VD [2021] EWFC 9, where he acted for a wife on a successful UHNW Part III claim. He also acted for a UHNW entrepreneur in the complex international case of IR v OR [2022] EWFC 20. James recently co-chaired the Education Programme for the IAFL European Chapter's highly successful meeting in Athens.
