The Spear’s Indices
Rising Stars Family Lawyers
Since joining ten years ago as a trainee, Frederick Tatham has swiftly moved up the ranks at Farrer & Co. It’s largely thanks to his part in a string of landmark and high-profile cases, including Prest V Petrodel and more recently Goddard Watts v Goddard Watts. The latter, which followed a separation in 2009, finally concluded last year with Tatham and his team succeeding in setting aside a court order for the second time. ‘The judge described it as vanishingly rare and possibly unique,’ he tells Spear’s proudly.
A broad adviser, Tatham has built a specialism in high-value and complex matrimonial finance disputes, often encompassing an international element.
