Stefano Nuvoloni QC - Family

Stefano has a recognised expertise in the most complex and sensitive of public law children cases having been appointed to Queen’s Counsel in 2017. His expertise encompasses all the most serious issues including the death or serious injury of children; murder of a parent; sexual abuse; organised and ritualised abuse; Fabricated/Induced Illness (FII); Sexual Exploitation and Trafficking; Radicalisation and Human Rights claims.

He advises local authorities in a broad spectrum of Human Rights Act claims, both as part of on-going proceedings and as free standing claims. Having been part of the ground breaking team that secured the first CSE injunctions Stefano continues to advise local authorities and police forces nationally on the disruption of Child Sexual Exploitation. He drafted the working Protocol for use by Local Authorities and Police Authorities commended in BCC v SK [2016] EWHC 310.

Stefano has extensive experience in protracted and complicated private law proceedings covering the full range of disputes; residence and contact, relocation and child abduction.

Stefano is Direct Access trained and is therefore able to accept instructions from prospective clients directly in respect of advice and representation.
