Terrence advises on international and domestic family law, with a particular focus on complex, high-value cases including divorce and financial proceedings, as well as children’s matters arising from the family breakdown. His work often involves cross-border disputes and cases that involve contested jurisdictions and has spanned Europe, Middle East, Russia, Asia and the United States.
Terrence studied law and commerce with a specialisation in tax which paved the way to his specialisation in complex finance work. He also regularly works alongside forensic accountants for clients who believe that their spouse may be hiding or moving assets or are otherwise being deceptive with family wealth.
