My caseload over the last 12 months has been extremely busy and more litigious than previous years,’ says Joshua Green, rising star in the family law department of Charles Russell Speechlys. ‘I don’t believe this to be a particular trend, just the nature of the cases I have been working on recently. We usually seek to settle matters out of court but it is not always possible. I have been involved in a number of trials in the High Court and the Court of Appeal in the last year dealing with a variety of cases including complex financial proceedings and Children Act matters.’ Many of his clients are from the sports sector, including international and premiership footballers. ‘This is a unique industry and our department has a good understanding of the needs of such clients, and how they can be best represented both in court and in negotiations with other solicitors. The firm is also well placed to provide the full range of legal services which clients in this industry might require as their careers develop, including corporate and commercial, real estate, private client, litigation and reputation management,’ says Green. Family law was a draw for him because, he says, ‘I find people and their relationships with other people endlessly fascinating. You learn your client’s life story going through this process and that means the job is never dull, never repetitive and never ceases to surprise. People lead very interesting lives.’
