Listed as a “Rising Star” in the 2023 edition of The Legal 500 for Family & Children Law

“’Oliver has a wonderful talent for advocacy, adopting the method of scrupulous attention to detail and a good, calm delivery of what he needs to say. He is well regarded by judges.’ Legal 500 (2023)

Oliver has been instructed in numerous FDRs and final hearings within financial remedy proceedings, often against more senior counsel. He has been involved in cases raising more unusual issues, such as substantial delay and significant disability. He very much welcomes instructions in this area.

Oliver has an especial interest in trusts issues arising from relationship breakdown involving unmarried couples. His first class undergraduate dissertation on the common intention constructive trust as applied to sole legal title disputes was described as a “stellar piece of original research” by the examiner.
