Daniel is a senior junior specialising in family law, and in particular financial claims arising out of divorce.
In the 2021 edition of Chambers & Partners, he is one of only two junior counsel listed as a ‘star individual’ in the field of matrimonial finance. The entry states:
‘Financial remedy specialist noted for his understate yet precise advocacy. He mainly represents high net worth clients in complex matters involving business interests and trusts. Bentham boasts further proficiency in jurisdiction disputes and in cases involving international tax and enforcement issues. He wins acclaim for his attention to detail and client care.’
‘Strengths: “Incredibly bright, totally unflappable, highly persuasive and very elegant.” “A polished advocate who is a quick-thinking, sensible negotiator.” “Incredibly cerebral and makes the best points in the best way.”‘
The 2021 edition of Legal 500 describes him as ‘incredibly bright (with) a lovely and engaging manner with counsel and clients alike’.
Daniel’s recent work includes the series of cases reported as FRB v DCA:
Jurisdiction to award interest on outstanding lump sum.
Application to vary final order owing to the pandemic.
Issues of non-disclosure and conduct. Order for £64m.
