Ben is an Associate Solicitor in the Family department and joined Family Law Group in January 2020. He works in the Derby office but also has clients across both Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. He works in all aspects of Family Law and has particular experience in complex financial matters, child arrangements and cohabitation disputes.
Ben attended Chester College of Law and Hull University where he graduated in 2006. He then trained in Derby and since 2012 has specialised in Family Law matters across the East Midlands. He has worked and trained in several small and large regional firms and has also been an Associate Lecturer in Family Law for the University of West England.
Ben embarked on a career in law because he wanted to help people resolve family disputes and move on with their lives. He enjoys helping clients plan for the future by solving problems, at what can be a challenging and emotional time in their life. Ben is an effective communicator and has a straight-talking approach, which allows him to simplify issues for clients. He is also an experienced advocate and specialises in dealing with complex financial matters alongside private children law issues.
Ben is a member of Resolution and is an active member in the local legal community, having previously been President of the Derby and District Law Society. He is also a board member of Derby Law School and the Student Legal Advice Centre, where he is also a mentor to students.
In both 2015 and 2016, Ben was a nominated finalist in the UK Family Law Awards. He is also recommended by Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners guides.
Outside of work, Ben is a keen sportsman both playing cricket and 11-a-side football. He is also a film fanatic and enjoys a wide variety of music.
