Nick Howell-Jones

Call: 2000


Nick has been at the Bar since 2000. He is a specialist on all aspects of matrimonial finance and has a large practice with extensive experience of complex high net worth cases including those involving business, farming and pension issues representing husband’s or wives.

He also has significant experience of disputes between unmarried couples, in particular applications under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 and Schedule 1 applications.

Prior to coming to the Bar, Nick was a partner in a firm of solicitors. He has seen cases from both sides of the profession and brings all that experience with him and knows what he would expect from Counsel.

He is pleased to accepted direct access instructions. He would be happy to look at papers, and then assist the client as to the best level of representation for them. He will meet in chambers if that assists and provide advice in person or in writing if that is preferred.

He believes being involved at an early stage can be of a great advantage as it can provide focus and reduce overall cost. If a meeting in Chambers is the desired approach then he will consider an agenda to ensure each topic is considered. Nick aims to take a sympathetic yet realistic approach while keeping the key issues firmly in mind.
