2018 eprivateclient Top Family Law Firm - Bircham Dyson Bell (BDB) - has added David Thompson as a partner in its family team. Mr Thompson joins BDB from Charles Russell Speechlys.

Mr Thompson’s practice encompasses a broad range of matrimonial disputes with a particular focus on complex financial and international matters; he has experience in family law instructions with jurisdictional cross-border trust and company dimensions.

Alongside his practice, he is the current chair of the London region of Resolution (the national organisation for family lawyers), and is also a member of the Cambridge regional committee. Working closely with the rest of BDB’s family team advising high net worth clients in matrimonial matters, Mr Thompson will divide his time between BDB’s London and Cambridge offices. 

Mr Thompson commented: “BDB is a dynamic firm and continues to go from strength to strength. It will be a privilege to contribute to BDB’s growth in both London and Cambridge. The firm’s emphasis on complex financial and international matrimonial disputes is a perfect fit for my practice and I look forward to offering the high quality advice that BDB’s clients expect.”

Andrew Smith, BDB's managing partner, added: “I am delighted to welcome David Thompson to BDB as a family partner. David’s extensive experience aligns seamlessly with the family team’s expertise and he will be a valuable addition to the team. As a firm we continue to invest in key external hires as well as nurturing our internal talent.”

BDB’s Cambridge office was established following the acquisition of King & Wood Mallesons’ real estate team based in Cambridge in January 2017. The office is expanding beyond real estate to become a full service office providing advice across BDB’s core areas of expertise, including IP/IT, corporate, commercial, employment, charities and private wealth.
