Matthew Booth

Spear’s Review

‘In the family justice system, wealth won’t necessarily buy the outcome you may want,’ Matthew Booth told Spear’s.

Booth, who had a previous career as an orchestral musician before switching to family law, has been in the Payne Hicks Beach partnership since 2014. He primarily works with matrimonial and Schedule 1 cases while also advising on pre- and post-nuptial agreements, family trust structures and inherited assets. 

It’s a varied workload, with the firm’s UK client base now strongly diversified to reflect international trends. With clients originating from America, Sweden and South Africa, Booth’s cases frequently have an international dimension – much to his pleasure. ‘I enjoy the way in which family law reflects social and cultural progress,’ he said.
