Julian Ribet (London)

About Julian
I was admitted to practice as a Solicitor in 1999 and joined the firm in November 2000. I became a Partner in April 2007.
I am a specialist family lawyer who has an impressive and successful track record in dealing with complicated financial and children related disputes arising on relationship breakdown/divorce.
I act for domestic and international clients from all walks of life. I am regularly instructed in high net worth cases, many of which have an international dimension where it is important to get expert advice at an early stage due to potential jurisdictional issues. My cases often involve tracing assets and unravelling complicated financial issues including dealing with inherited wealth, offshore trusts, substantial business assets, companies, tax and pensions.
I have considerable expertise in relation to the preparation of pre and post nuptial agreements including for a number of high profile, wealthy individuals. I have a conscientious approach and aim to provide a service of the highest quality. I take care to ensure that my client's interests are properly protected whilst acting in a professional manner with sensitivity and discretion. I have an excellent understanding of the law and procedure and an empathetic approach to the issues faced by my clients. I do my best to find constructive and pragmatic solutions to the issues faced by my clients and have acted for a number of clients in the media spotlight.
I work closely with leading specialist family law barristers and forensic accountants to provide an expert bespoke solution for my clients as cost effectively as possible.
I am a member of Resolution. I am a Resolution Accredited Specialist Family Lawyer with particular expertise in complicated financial cases and freezing injunctions and am also a Resolution trained "all issues" Mediator.
I qualified as one of the country's youngest specialist Family Arbitrators and am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
