The head of family law at Collyer Bristow, Yerburgh enjoys the variety of his work, spanning mediation, litigation and jurisdictions. Perhaps because of this he takes a holistic view, advocating problem avoidance as much as problem solving. That ranges from getting a ‘neutral evaluation’ to resolve a particular point in a marriage breakdown (‘It’s particularly useful for children cases and areas where there is no absolute right answer’, he has previously told Spear’s) – to preventing breakdowns in the first instance with a pre-nup (he’s overseen at least one worth £800 million). The post-nup is also something he advocates, guaranteeing pre-conditioned gifts and avoiding complex trust and tax arrangements.
