Maitland Chambers is ‘a reliable set with a good reputation for Chancery law’. Appellate work, religious charities litigation and challenging the Charity Commission continue to feature heavily in chambers’ caseload, and recent matters saw Andrew Westwood successfully represent Human Dignity Trust appealing the refusal of the Charity Commission to register his client as a charity.

Radcliffe Chambers is ‘a very strong and able set, with a range of respected and capable counsel at all levels’. Work highlights saw Robert Pearce QC instructed by the trustees of a Sikh temple regarding a disputed election in Tarsem Singh Sandhu v The Charity Commission and others, and Joshua Winfield defending a businessman who converted two property companies into charities to avoid paying tax in Charity Commission of Northern Ireland v Tughan.

Wilberforce Chambers is ‘a first port of call’ for some. Jonathan Davey QC appeared in a high-profile case involving a £45m tax avoidance scheme in Charity Commission v Mountstar (PTC) and others, while other work highlights have included Chinachem Charitable Foundation v The Secretary for Justice of Hong Kong, a headline dispute over the interpretation of the will of the late Nina Wang.

XXIV Old Buildings is ‘a renowned set with strength in depth’. Elspeth Talbot Rice QC acted in Gill v RSPCA; a challenge to a mother’s will that left everything to the RSPCA, brought by the daughter on grounds of lack of knowledge and approval and undue influence.
