Robert Micklem

Legal Director

Robert joined Burgess Mee in October 2014. He studied Philosophy and Theology at Durham University before completing his Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course at BPP in Holborn.

He trained at Manches LLP and qualified into their family department in 2011. He later worked at Dawson Cornwell before joining Burgess Mee. Robert handles all types of family law work including divorce, matrimonial finance, pre-nuptial agreements, private children matters including international relocation and disputes between cohabiting couples. However, his work has predominantly involved advising clients in complex financial cases often with an international element.

In his spare time, Robert enjoys reading, travelling, going to the cinema and playing most sports.

Robert sits on the Committee for both the London and South West London Regions of Resolution, the national organisation for Family Lawyers, and organises events throughout the year for all family lawyers in London. He also founded the Family Law Agreements Group ('FLAG'), with solicitors from other family law practices, which provides a client focussed approach to the drafting and negotiation of nuptial, separation and cohabitation agreements.
