One of Farrer’s leading lights, William Massey remains involved in cutting-edge cases. In a November 2016 re-hearing of Goddard-Watts v Goddard- Watts – where non-disclosure of assets had unravelled the original consent order – Massey’s client was awarded an additional £6.42 million. While Massey has undoubtedly played a significant role in shaping the future of family law, his demeanour is remarkably understated. ‘An awful lot of the skill in what we do is being able to manage the expectations of clients,’ he says. ‘We have to win their trust and reassure them that our aim is to obtain the best outcome in the least litigious way possible.’
