Oliver Hall

Oliver Hall

Profile

Oliver is an experienced family lawyer, predominantly based in our York office. He has been providing clients with trusted advice for over 13 years on financial matters arising from divorce and civil partnership dissolution, cohabitation disputes and child arrangement issues that have included applications for leave to remove children from the jurisdiction.  His experience means that he is accustomed to dealing with cases of a complex nature including high net worth financial disputes and cases with cross jurisdictional issues.

As a resolution-trained mediator, Oliver is able to assist parties in co-operative communication, with the aim of helping them to reach an agreement without the need for costly court proceedings.

Oliver’s local knowledge of the North Yorkshire and Ryedale areas means he has gained significant experience in representing clients in cases involving agricultural and equestrian issues. Oliver also advises clients in cases involving domestic violence and the resulting issues relating to the occupation of property.

    Private Client
  • "Oliver Hall is the most patient, diplomatic, empathetic, yet effective lawyer I have ever dealt with. He took the pressure of a very intense, difficult and quite scary situation off me and helped me to understand the key points and not to get caught up in the emotions of it all. He has the ability to disarm aggressive people through his calm, thoughtful responses. He explained to me very clearly what all of my options were and the pro’s and con’s of each of them.

    He was supportive of my situation but was also firm with me when he needed to be, usually when I was getting dragged into the emotional drama these situations generate. He managed to obtain the best possible outcome for me and my daughter and this has made both of our lives immeasurably better."

    Legal 500 2021
  • "Oliver Hall: Open, attentive and available. Clear client advocacy – timely and pragmatic advice offered. Willingness to talk through complex issues; able to clarify procedures/processes and to provide clear alternatives, indicating pros and cons. Able to ground discussion when client starts to get overwhelmed or off-piste. Robust advocate of client in dealing with other solicitors and in court. Very well prepared for court proceedings – excellent summary statements that are delivered in a measured and compelling manner. Able to calm client in times of stress.

    Overall, Oliver exudes confidence and competence, which was in stark contrast to the opposing counsel. I was very pleased to have Oliver as my advocate, he conducted himself in a way that attuned with my values and goals and, importantly, he achieved an excellent final settlement for me. I would recommend him without reservation."
