James Ferguson leads the department at Boodle Hatfield, where he presided over a 33 per cent boost in revenue in 2018.
He’s 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,
but by us acquiring more multi-million-pound HNW clients with more complex cases to resolve,’ he says.
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 hard-fought and very difficult case that we are
immensely proud of having won.’
