What can I help you with?
I have over 25 years’ family law experience and head our national family law team. My practice mainly involves landed estates/manager owner businesses and my expertise is based on resolving complex financial cases involving family businesses, farms and trusts. I have extensive experience drafting marital agreements, cohabitation disputes and private Children Act proceedings and am a qualified arbitrator and mediator.
Example(s) of some recent work
I am routinely instructed in high value family finance cases, which have farms, trusts and businesses involved. On wealth protection, I have significant experience advising on marital agreements where the focus is on the protection of inherited or future wealth.
What do others say about me?
Chambers UK 2020: Nick is "an excellent solicitor … superb at keeping the client focused." Other client testimonials from Chambers confirm "I found his precision to be very helpful. He was very patient, understanding, knowledgeable, experienced and level-headed” and “Nick Stone is first class; he is highly regarded as one of the best matrimonial lawyers in East Anglia.”
What else should you know?
I have co-authored Divorce and the Farm, Divorce and the Family Business, Counting the Cost of Cohabitation and, most recently, Drawing the Lines: A Guide to Family Agreements”. I contribute to various legal journals and lecture on family law/financial matters on divorce. Away from work, I am a keen cricket fan.
