Radcliffe Chambers (Chambers of Keith Rowley QC)

Position

Justin Holmes is an experienced adviser and advocate in both the Chancery Division and the Court of Protection. In the High Court, he advises and represents executors, trustees and beneficiaries in disputes involving wills, estates and trusts, and has particular experience of applications under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. He has advised and represented clients in numerous cases involving the selection or replacement of executors, administrators and trustees. His practice includes applications in the Probate Registry of the Family Division as well as in the Chancery Division of the High Court. A major part of his work is providing sensible, clear and practical advice to executors, trustees and administrators on the construction of wills and trusts, and, if necessary, obtaining the court’s determination of questions in dispute. He also has particular experience of Court of Protection litigation, including contested deputyships, objections to attorneys under Lasting and Enduring Powers of Attorney, orders for lifetime gifts and statutory wills, applications for declarations of capacity, applications for personal welfare orders (such as a direction as to which residential home is suitable for the incapacitated person, or whether a particular individual should be allowed to visit the incapacitated person), and applications for authority to conduct litigation. He is a regular speaker at conferences on Court of Protection matters and on wills and probate issues.
