Henry Pritchard



Since joining chambers in 2021 upon the completion of his pupillage, Henry has been developing a broad practice and accepts instructions in all areas of private family law. In addition to representing clients in court, he is frequently instructed to undertake advisory and drafting work.

Henry completed pupillage under the supervision of Josh Viney, Katherine Cook, Jude Allen and Emma Sumner. During this time he assisted on a number of high value financial remedy cases, including in the High Court and the Court of Appeal.

Before joining chambers Henry worked as a paralegal at a leading specialist family law solicitors’ firm in London. He worked on both finance and children cases, many of which involved international elements.

Henry is a regular contributor to the Class Legal newsletter, in which he provides summaries of recent cases of interest. He also recently wrote (with Josh Viney) an article for Family Law Week concerning the court’s approach to child maintenance in high income cases.

Before coming to the Bar, Henry worked for a major Anglo-Asian conglomerate. He spent three years living in Hong Kong and India.
