Jonathan Arr - Macfarlanes LLP

Within: Contentious trusts and probate

A considerable amount of work at Macfarlanes LLP runs into monetary values of hundreds of millions or billions. The firm works closely with its private client offering to provide contentious and non-contentious advice. It regularly deals with the largest trusts and estates that hold prominent businesses, other substantial property holdings and large cash and investment portfolios both nationally and internationally. The disputes it acts in not only affect adult individuals but also whole conglomerates and their employees and multiple generations of the same family. Charles Lloyd heads the team that acts for beneficiaries, spouses, trustees, financial institutions as well as entrepreneurs and those with hereditary wealth and their protectors. Jonathan Arr 'goes the extra mile' for clients, while Elizabeth Doherty was recently promoted to the partnership.

  • Finding the ‚Ä®right words

    In the recent case of Newbury v Sun Microsystems [2013], the defendant argued that an offer to settle proceedings was ‚Äėin principle' only and that a binding contract could not be formed until further terms had been agreed and a formal contract had been signed. It supported this argument by referring to a statement, in the offer letter, that the settlement was to be ‚Äėrecorded in a suitably worded agreement'. ‚Ä©
