Terry Hamer is a Consultant Solicitor and a former Partner with BHP Law and has general overview of the Family Team as a whole. The team is developing an expertise rarely rivalled by competitors and pride’s itself in finding itself climbing up the Category level with its annual entry in the Legal 500.

Terry is Child Panel Accredited and is very child centred in his approach to resolving all the families issues as generally the “children’s interests” are considered paramount. It is not his approach that the “client is always right” but once he has given advice he will always drive a case in accordance with the client instructions – over the years this has always stood him in good stead with Judges, opponent’s and particularly clients who generally like his no nonsense common sense advice.

Terry's workload is now almost exclusively in the Publice Law arena.  He pride’s himself in being able to hold his own (and promote the client’s interests) before many Courts & Tribunals including the High Court, County Court, Family Proceedings Court, Magistrates Court and Tribunals to name but a few. His use of Barristers is rare but, when necessary, he has a panel of experienced and competent Counsel which has been built up over many years within his chosen field.

In the past couple of years, Terry has dealt with Financial Dispute resolution in many Courts, successfully defended Child abduction proceedings, joined parties (father in law) to divorce proceedings to seek restitution of funds which should be excluded from the matrimonial “pot” thus looking to ring fence assets which have been contributed by divorcing wife’s father and even secure a £1 Million interim payment for a client!

Another string to his bow (which fits very nicely with his litigation skillset) is what the firm likes to term “white collar crime”. As an experienced litigator Terry enjoys the challenge of representing those that have had a brush with the law (or Statutory Body) and often takes up the challenge of some quite often complicated matters such as proceedings by the Environment Agency, Trading Standards, Health & Safety or seeking to preserve Driving licences for those hit by the dreaded “totting up procedure”.
