Sonny was admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of England & Wales in 2006.
Before joining Expatriate Law in September 2014, Sonny practised family law at Seddons, a Legal 500 rated law firm based in London’s West End, where he consistently achieved outstanding results for his clientele of professionals and entrepreneurs.
Although based in Central London throughout his career, Sonny has represented clients who have instructed him remotely from locations such as Singapore, Switzerland, South Africa, Canada, the United States and the UAE.
Sonny honed his skills working with (and successfully acting against) leading lawyers in London’s best family law teams. His recent experience encompasses high net worth divorce and financial settlements, advice on jurisdiction and forum shopping, the relocation of children across international borders and negotiating and drafting prenuptial agreements.
Sonny is a solutions-driven negotiator and is highly motivated by a desire to help his clients emerge from the legal process with their finances and their dignity intact – particularly where there are children involved. However, if reasonable agreement cannot be reached Sonny has significant experience of litigation in the London courts.
