The head of the national family law team at Mills & Reeve specialises in complex financial cases involving businesses, trusts or pensions. Bamber was recently involved in the mediation of an international family dispute and in a large multi-jurisdiction trust case before the High Court. He is one of the most experienced dispute resolution practitioners, having qualified as a mediator in 1990 and — more recently — as a family arbitrator.
Clients appreciate his reassuring nature and ability to simplify complex situations, as he spends a lot of time helping people understand how divorce — a process that can be emotionally exhausting — works. He often lectures in the UK and in Europe, and has written articles and books on divorce — including one as a co-author about the emotional fallout of each legal step, with advice on limiting the impact on children. He also set up divorce.co.uk.
