Iain Hutchinson

Called 2013

Iain specialises in all areas of family law.

He completed his pupillage in October 2017 under the supervision of Julia Nelson and was exposed to the breadth of Family and Court of Protection litigation.

Iain is regularly instructed to act in all areas of Family law and is developing a varied practice including private children, care proceedings, injunctive proceedings, and financial remedies.

"Iain Hutchinson is hard working, approachable, calm and intelligent. He is reliable and professional clients request that he represents them in complex cases. Despite being quite young he relishes new complex challenging cases both in terms of legal complexities but also dealing with litigants in person. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as counsel to represent any party but in particular a Local Authority."
