Ben qualified into the Divorce & Family department in October 2022 on the conclusion of his training contract with the firm.


Ben acted in the reported case of WC v HC (Financial Remedies Agreement) [2022] EWFC 22, forming part of the team that acted for the husband in a case that dealt with the legal position in relation to agreed but unsigned nuptial agreements. The wife’s settlement offers vastly exceeded the court’s ultimate determination, representing an excellent and well-deserved outcome for our client.


Ben graduated from the University of Leeds in 2016 before completing the Legal Practice Course the following year. Ben started working at Stewarts in November 2017 as a paralegal in the firm’s Commercial Litigation and Employment departments before commencing his training contract in 2020.


Ben is a keen sportsman and captains the Stewarts 5-a-side football team. He is also a keen golfer and regularly attends the firm’s annual ski trip to Morzine.
