Profile

Toby Atkinson

Description

Spear's Review

‘Most clients want the same thing – to reach settlement quickly, efficiently and without acrimony – and I work hard to achieve that,’ says Toby Atkinson.

Atkinson credits his calm demeanour, pragmatism and sense of humour as the attributes that have driven his reputation since arriving at Stewarts. Peers say he is also popular with lawyers across the profession, thanks partly to his ability to stay calm ‘in the heat of battle’.

As part of Stewarts’ formidable London-based team, he describes his current practice as reliably international. ‘As the capital has cemented its position as the world’s financial centre, more and more UNHWs have been drawn here,’ he says. ‘That’s led to a growing number of extremely high-value divorce awards.’

Adviser Profile

Toby advises clients in relation to a broad range of family law issues arising on the breakdown of marriage or cohabitation, with an emphasis on the financial claims that arise on divorce. He has particular experience of international cases, often involving jurisdiction disputes.

Toby also has significant expertise in cases concerning highly contested contact arrangements and is an experienced practitioner in the field of international child abduction.

Toby is praised by The Legal 500 as being "extraordinarily able and extremely bright". He is ranked by both Chambers UK and Chambers High Net Worth 2020, with one interviewee commenting: "He is excellent - he has a great grasp of how to manage international cases."
