Edward is a partner in Penningtons Manches Cooper's family department. He advises on all legal issues arising from relationship breakdown, including the financial consequences of divorce and separation, arrangements for children and, increasingly, preparing and negotiating pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements. Edward acts for a wide variety of clients, including entrepreneurs, City professionals and their spouses and also has experience of working on ‘big money’ cases with complex asset structures.
His practice includes cases with an international element and he has recently presented on such issues in Moscow and the University of Lausanne. Edward has considerable experience of family dispute resolution and is an active member of the English family lawyers’ organisation, Resolution. He is a regular contributor to legal journals and co-editor of the England and Wales chapter of Thomson Reuters’ Family Law – A Global Guide.
He is ranked as ‘Up and coming’ in the latest edition of Chambers HNW, where a commentator reports: "His forensic attention to detail is second to none, he is highly numerate, and his calmness under pressure is legendary. He has developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of international law that permeates all of his cases and is hugely beneficial to the clients that instruct him." Spear’s 500 Guide features Edward as a ‘Rising star’, with a source describing him as ‘one of the leading young family lawyers of his generation’.
