Mr. Bailey is a family law specialist with a substantial breadth of experience in both child and matrimonial cases. He is well recognised for excellence in written and oral advocacy.
Mr. Bailey has developed particular expertise in complex and serious public law proceedings and is increasingly instructed by local authorities in cases involving technical expert evidence, serious sexual and ritual abuse (historic and recent) and cases with an international dimension. Mr. Bailey has notably appeared over the last eighteen months in cases involving multiple fractures, serious enclosed head injury, multi-generational sex abuse and the systematic abuse of a child where capacity issues were relevant. Mr. Bailey has successfully represented both local authorities and alleged perpetrator clients.
Mr. Bailey's matrimonial practice encompasses all forms of complex financial provision litigation and related cases, with particular emphasis on substantial assets and those with business and trust interests. He has most recently undertaken cases involving a 'Barder' claim; the significance of entirely inherited wealth; the complex ownership of familial farming assets; the dissipation of substantial matrimonial assets; the innovative structure of a pension claim to maximise benefits for both parties; a short marriage case involving a claim for compensation; a set aside application based on a claim of 'non-marriage' overseas; and cases involving the implications of a POCA order on the distribution of matrimonial assets. Mr. Bailey frequently appears in multi-day cases and has experience of high net worth clients.
Mr. Bailey is also regularly instructed to advise on and to draft pre and post nuptial settlements.
Mr. Bailey is highly regarded for his detailed preparation and forensic approach to case presentation and cross-examination.
