Profile

Richard Hogwood

Description

Spear's Review

Family lawyer Richard Hogwood has particular expertise and experience in financial matters. He joined Slaughter and May in 1999 and worked at the Magic Circle firm as a corporate tax lawyer. Subsequently, he spent nine years as a private client tax and trusts lawyer at what is now Charles Russell Speechlys.

When dealing with family cases he is always sensitive to the human aspect, ensuring that clients have‘ the ability to move on with life when the legal process is over’. Hogwood also gets tangible results, both financially and personally, for his clients.

Hogwood has clients of all backgrounds and from all around the world, including France, the US, the UAE, and Sweden. He has also represented Prince Louis of Luxembourg, for whom Hogwood helped secure reporting restrictions on divorce and financial remedy proceedings that took place in London.

Adviser Profile

Richard Hogwood is a partner in the Divorce and Family Team at Stewarts. He focuses particularly on negotiating the financial aspects of divorce and preparing pre- and post-nuptial agreements. Often there will be an international element and, with nuptial agreements especially, he is accustomed to liaising with lawyers in several different jurisdictions.

Albeit prepared to litigate and to be assertive where required, Richard's approach is to endeavour to achieve a good deal for his clients, quickly and quietly, avoiding the cost, stress and potential publicity of the courts where possible.

Reflective of his private client background, Richard is regularly involved in cases involving complex tax and trust issues.
