Michael Gouriet

Spear’s Review

Few family lawyers balance the emotive and technical aspects of the trade as well as Michael Gouriet, whose clients at Withers have included professionals, landed estate owners, politicians, film and music stars and their partners.

Cases range from £1 billion-plus matters on behalf of Middle Eastern families to intricate cohabitation matters. ‘In my experience you may have to take it so far down the court route to get to a solution, but matters shouldn’t go all the way to court unless there are serious issues,’ he told Spear’s.

A large amount of the work that Gouriet conducts is on behalf of international families, with an increasing number of cases involving third-party intervention from trustees and companies. Prenup work is another speciality.
