ProfileI am an experienced barrister with a broad practice in civil and family law. My strengths are providing clear, practical advice to individuals and companies together with fearless advocacy in court.
Whilst I welcome instructions in a very wide range of cases, my main interests in civil law are disputes about:
1. Trusts and ownership of land.
2. Wills and probate.
3. Contracts (both between businesses and between businesses and members of the public).
Equally, my main interests in family law are:
1. Disputes between parents and carers about their children (sometimes called “private law” cases) with particular emphasis on cases involving applications to remove a child from the UK or relocate him or her within it.
2. Financial remedy proceedings following a divorce, including “difficult” issues such as enforcement, third parties and appeals.
3. The Court of Protection.
In addition to this brief summary, I also maintain a website at http://www.giffordhead.co.uk which includes a fuller profile, details of significant cases, and articles about various areas of law.
I have accepted direct access work since 2014 and have represented clients on a direct access basis in a wide variety of work, from straight-forward hearings in the lower courts to complex litigation, working as part of a team with other barristers. My approach is one of flexibility: in some cases I carry out almost all the work from before the case starts until it concludes; in others I am simply instructed to represent a client at a Final Hearing or Trial.
