About Nigel Mears

Nigel specialises in resolving financial settlements often involving substantial and complex asset structures. He ensures that when difficulties occur that sensitive advice is given and positive action undertaken in order to protect clients' interests. He is mindful of the need to seek sensible solutions during times of uncertainty and change.

Throughout his career, Nigel has endeavoured to work closely with private client, corporate and litigation teams to ensure that a clients' personal circumstances are expertly dealt with and that solutions are implemented using a multi-disciplinary approach. He also strives to maintain a coherent approach by supporting existing professional relationships with other non-legal advisers.

Nigel fully realises that family breakdown is not solely about financial issues and has been concerned to advise sympathetically regarding concerns over children and to seek workable solutions. Although contested court proceedings are not unusual, the first objective is to seek a cost effective solution and to strive for a negotiated settlement based upon expert advice and experience.

Nigel has an interest in pre and post nuptial settlements as part of a structured matrimonial settlement.
