Withers partner Michael Gouriet has worked on some ‘really tricky cases’ over the past year. ‘What struck me this year was the level of animosity in some cases that arises between certain people that puts them into a loggerheads situation where they feel they’ve got to go to court to resolve it,’ he says.
He’s keen to highlight the breadth of the offering at Withers. ‘We’re really lucky to have people with such calibre within the firm,’ he says, noting one divorce case where he has utilised partners in four different areas of the firm.
Gouriet takes a rounded view of the trade: ‘Every single family case creates its own sort of factual scenario. They’re all quite idiosyncratic in their own way.’
