Nicholas Bennett

By Spear's

The former barrister at 29 Bedford Row has made a ‘seamless move’ to private practice after a five year stint the Bar, an external peer says. Praising his combination of ‘technical excellence with commercial sense and acumen’, he is confident of Bennett’s future prowess: ‘He will be a leading figure at Farrer’s in the years ahead.’ A sentiment also echoed by clients who acknowledge his wisdom and kindness.

The quadrilingual lawyer (with French, German and Italian up his sleeve) advises business leaders, celebrities, landed families and international HNWs – both in London and abroad. An expert in the complex European regulations governing international divorce, the lawyer is well-versed at disputes challenging the power of the English courts. IAFL (then IAML) recognised his talent in this field, giving him the Young Family Lawyer in Europe award in 2013.

He joined Farrer as an associate in 2011, and moved up through the ranks from senior associate in 2013 to partner in 2016. He also lectures on law and pre-nups at Oxford.
