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 continues to be one of the leading practitioners in the field.

Adviser Profile

James is top ranked in all the major legal directories and is described as having ‘astonishing skills in international financial matters’ and ‘undoubtedly one of the leaders in family law globally’.

A Visiting Professor of Law at Ulster University and General Editor of the ‘Blue Book’ (Family Law: A Global Guide), the definitive comparative guide to international family law, James is a recognised authority in complex high-net worth cases. He has carved a significant reputation for himself in the entertainment and music industries, having acted in a number of high-profile divorces.  

A Fellow and former Parliamentarian of the IAFL, James shines in difficult cases that need strategic vision and a motivated team.
