James Ferguson leads the family department at Boodle Hatfield, where he presided over a 33 per cent boost in revenue in 2018.

He’s very quick to heap praise on his team. ‘This was achieved not just by our hugely talented and expanding team of home-grown associates working more hours,’ he says, ‘but by us acquiring more multi-million-pound HNW clients with more complex cases to resolve.’

One 2018 case yielded a seven -figure payout for a client, after a prenup was overturned at the High Court. ‘Things like this don’t happen very often,’ he says. ‘It was a very difficult case, and one that we are immensely proud of having won.’

His notable cases also include the first civil partnership financial relief case to reach the High Court.
