James Stewart

By Spear's

The head of Penningtons Manches’ family team has built a reputation for cross-jurisdictional cases, and a commercial edge, having begun his career at corporate law firm Reynolds Porter Chamberlain. He acted for the successful wife in the case of AB v JJB [2015], one of the first reported cases to focus on the English court’s jurisdiction under Article 3 of the European Maintenance Regulation. He also worked on the headline-grabbing AI v MT case, where the judge agreed to recognise a religious ruling — specifically a Jewish Beth Din decision — the first case where a High Court judge delegated authority to a Jewish religious tribunal.

A trained arbitrator, he was one of the founders of Collaborative Family Law, an organisation that promotes non-court alternatives in cases involving big money or celebrities.
