About Henry

Henry’s clients include private clients, privately-owned companies, family offices and offshore law firms. 

His experience covers claims against financial advisers, all aspects of trust disputes, probate claims and advising trustees in the context of divorce proceedings.  He also has experience of group litigation in professional negligence and trust claims against advisers.  As well as assisting onshore clients, ‎his work has a significant cross-border element.‎

Henry handles the firm's Privy Council agency work and has advised on over 30 appeals and applications for permission to appeal to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.  Henry’s practice has given him an unusually large amount of experience of acting for clients in other appellate courts as well as the Privy Council, having overseen several cases through the Court of Appeal. 

In the summer of 2015, Henry represented Barry Beavis (on a pro bono basis) ‎in the widely publicised Supreme Court case concerning the law of penalties in the context of consumer contracts, Beavis v ParkingEye Ltd, which resulted in the most significant judgment for 100 years in that particular area of law.   


Henry joined Harcus Sinclair in 2005, becoming a partner in 2015.  He is recommended in both leading directories and has been described by The Legal 500 (2016 edition) as “a calm head” with “a measured style when dealing with opponents” and in Chambers & Partners (2017 edition) as “very bright and able” and able to “keep his head under a considerable amount of pressure”
