Profile

Matthew Humphries

Description

Spear's Review

‘I am known for my attention to detail, which ensures that nothing – no matter how small – is overlooked,’ says Matthew Humphries, a divorce specialist in Stewarts’ busy family practice. ‘Combined with my strategic approach to litigation, this ensures I obtain the best possible results.’ Recognising the emotional hardship often faced by clients going through difficult divorces, he is not afraid to ‘protect clients from themselves’. This may involve delivering robust and perhaps even unwelcome advice, particularly when it comes to cautioning clients against litigation.

In recent years, Humphries has acted in ‘some very substantial cases’, with assets often in excess of £50 million. He tells Spear’s that he also handled some ‘cutting edge’ matters, including set-aside injunctions and nuptial settlement.
