Within: Contentious trusts and probate

Farrer & Co is regularly involved in many of the largest trust and estates disputes often involving one or more offshore jurisdictions. Recently it has been involved in proceedings taking place in The Bahamas, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Cyprus, Guernsey, Hong Kong, Jersey, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. The team benefits from the firm’s stable of high-net-worth clients, trust companies and fiduciaries from England and Wales and overseas, which provides a steady flow of high-value and complex instructions in this area. It is also increasingly advising on legacy disputes. Toby Graham and Jeremy Gordon are highly recommended. Gordon also has extensive experience of resolving claims at mediation as well as in court. The team also includes Charlotte Fraser, Joanna Poole and Adam Carvalho.
