Matthew Humphries

Spear's Review

‘I am known for my attention to detail, which ensures that nothing – no matter how small – is overlooked,’ says Matthew Humphries, a divorce specialist in Stewarts’ busy family practice. ‘Combined with my strategic approach to litigation, this ensures I obtain the best possible results.’

Recognising the emotional hardship often faced by clients going through difficult divorces, he is not afraid to ‘protect clients from themselves’. This may involve delivering robust and perhaps even unwelcome advice, particularly when it comes to cautioning clients against litigation.

In recent years, Humphries has acted in ‘some very substantial cases’, with assets often in excess of £50 million. He tells Spear’s that he also handled some ‘cutting edge’ matters, including set-aside injunctions and nuptial settlement.

Adviser's Profile

Matthew's expertise is resolving complex financial claims arising on family breakdown. He represents high net worth individuals, or their spouses / partners, frequently in cases involving intricate trust and/or corporate structures often with an international element.

Matthew also regularly advises upon the negotiation of nuptial agreements and the resolution of arrangements for children post separation.  Matthew is described in Chambers High Net Worth 2021 as being 'as good as it gets in cut-and-thrust litigation. He is really good at positioning clients strongly in a courtroom battle.' and also as 'very bright, very strategic and also approachable.' Chambers 2021 adds 'He is extremely good and very sharp.'
