Simon Perkis

I am a public access qualified family law barrister who specialises in contact and residence disputes between parents and financial disputes on divorce and separation.

I have extensive experience in resolving conflicts through both negotiation and cross-examination. I listen carefully to my clients’ wishes and needs and we work together to identify the strategies required to achieve the best possible outcome for them.

I regularly lecture to fellow professionals on complex family law matters and also write articles on legal topics of interest.

Outside of work I am often found supporting Leicester Tigers Rugby Club and enjoy cycling along the (down) hills of Hampshire!

My areas of expertise include:

Financial Disputes between Spouses and Cohabitees  

These cases regularly involve disputes relating to spousal maintenance, pensions, disputed value of property and businesses, inheritance and non-disclosure of evidence.

Contact disputes

These cases regularly involve residence and relocation disputes, arguments regarding supervised access and allegations of domestic violence and coercive control.

Notable cases

Matrimonial Finance

· Acted for a Husband who successfully kept his entire pension despite a long marriage
· Persuaded a Judge at final hearing that a Husband had failed to provide full or accurate disclosure in respect of his business interests

Children Disputes

· Obtained findings of fact that a client had been the victim of sexual violence despite the absence of corroborative police disclosure
· Successfully argued that a Mother should be given permission to live with her child permanently outside of the UK
