Philip McGuirk

‘I would say we’ve had another stellar year,’ reports Philip McGuirk. In 2021 Payne Hicks Beach reported a £4 million year-on-year increase in revenue.

McGuirk, along with Rebecca Cockcroft, is co-head of the family department at Payne Hicks Beach. He has observed rising demand among clients for private financial dispute resolution (FDR), and he also believes other methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) have much in their favour. ‘I can see private children mediation taking off,’ he says.

However, the days of ‘divorce tourism’ may be numbered. ‘I think the court is coming down rather more harshly on speculative forum shopping – divorce tourists, claimants who are prepared to pursue highly speculative claims. And that’s a good thing.’
