Maitland Chambers β€˜remains the top London set for large-scale offshore mandates’. Members’ experience spans jurisdictions such as Cayman, Bermuda, BVI, Gibraltar and the Channel Islands. Recent case highlights include Catherine Newman QC’s involvement in Trilogy in Jersey, and Paul Girolami QC acting in two of the largest Hong Kong estate disputes: The Estate of Henry Fok and The Estate of Nina Wang.

The β€˜go-to’ set for international trusts work, Serle Court houses β€˜first-rate advisers, who also pull their weight as part of a team’. Members are consistently acting in the higher courts in Cayman Islands, BVI, Bermuda, Bahamas, Jersey and Guernsey, and are well-regarded for handling the full range of contentious and non-contentious work. Dominic Dowley QC recently acted in Gleeson v Aicardi, a breach of fiduciary duty case concerning land transactions in Bermuda.

Wilberforce Chambers contains β€˜many of the world’s leading barristers for international trust litigation’. Members have particular strengths in cases spanning the Caribbean, Asia, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar, and handle big-ticket insolvency, shareholder and trust disputes. Recent cases saw members appearing in the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal in Tang v Tang, concerning constructive trusts remedies, and handling a family dispute in Cayman, Hinds v Hinds, related to a number of valuable land development plots.

XXIV Old Buildings is β€˜an all-round very strong set’ with a long-established profile in jurisdictions such as BVI and Cayman, as well as a growing reputation in Cyprus, Hong Kong, Singapore and Anguilla. Members also handle commercial and traditional Chancery work involving Middle Eastern parties. Three members are acting in Al Sadik, a large Cayman dispute involving a $100m claim for recovery of losses caused by breach of fiduciary by an international bank. Stephen Moverley Smith QC is instructed by the claimants in Michailidis v Credit Agricole, a claim against the bank for the proceeds of stolen antique furniture.
