Joe’s practice covers all areas of private family law, with a focus on financial remedies (including cases brought under TLATA 1996). He is the most junior member of the family bar to be ranked in Band 3 of the 2022 edition of Chambers & Partners for Matrimonial Finance, where he is described as a ‘rapidly rising junior’. He has appeared solo in several multi-day High Court trials covered by the national press, where he has been commended by the Court for his “conspicuous skill”.
Joe is increasingly led by silks and senior juniors both in and out of Chambers. He has also successfully appeared unled against leading silks in contested financial remedy cases. He has a particular interest in cases involving complex asset structures, pensions, international dimensions and enforcement issues.
Joe is unabashedly passionate about his work. He sits on the editorial board of Class Legal’s Financial Remedies Journal, writes periodically for a number of leading journals and websites, and is a contributor to the third edition of International Trust and Divorce Litigation, LexisNexis, 2019. His writing has, on occasion, been referenced and approved by the judiciary: see for example KM v CV  EWFC B22. He lectures frequently on a range of topics.
