Department: Family

Who am I?

I am a partner in the family department, working alongside Susan Knight and Helen Evennett. I joined Coole Bevis in 2020.

What I do

I specialise in financial and children disputes that come about following the breakdown of a relationship. Many of those disputes arise during or following the divorce process, of which I have a great deal of experience.

I recognise how difficult it can be to leave a relationship with dignity and I am committed to finding pragmatic and constructive solutions. I work with clients to achieve a fair outcome.

Whilst I embrace mediation and other non-adversarial solutions I am an experienced litigator.

I enjoy advocacy and frequently appear in the local family courts and at the Central Family Court in central London. During the 16 years that I have worked in family law I have represented a wide variety of clients from different backgrounds.

My Achievements

I am a member of Resolution (First for Family Law). I hold Resolution accreditation in ‘Complex lower income financial remedies’ and ‘Advocacy Financial Remedy proceedings’.

In 2016, I had a reported judgement. Migliaccio v Migliaccio [2016] EWHC 1055 (FAM): Decision of Mosytn J sitting in the High court in connection with a complex enforcement matter.

I am a Recommended Lawyer in The Legal 500 2022 and am also a Ranked Lawyer in Chambers & Partners 2022 (Family - Brighton & Surrounds).

"Charles Tennant is a very dedicated and experienced professional and I have worked with him on financial remedy cases for many years. He is extremely committed and conscientious and leaves no stone unturned in his cases. He is always a master of the detail without losing sight of the bigger picture. He provides his clients with careful and pragmatic advice and is both sympathetic and sensible. I have no hesitation in recommending him as an excellent all-round matrimonial solicitor."

My hobbies and interests

I have 2 young children; when I am not spending time with them I enjoy sport. My principle hobby is cycling.
