The ‘well-respected’ team at Gateley Plc collaborates closely with the firm’s private client department and was joined in 2017 by legal director Fiona Debney from Clarke Willmott LLP. The caseload consists mainly of complex disputes and related professional negligence litigation, with a track record that ranges from pursuing a claim against an executor for devastavit to the removal of a non-cooperative trustee of a will trust. Practice head Chris Greenwell’s team includes newly promoted legal director Claire Herbert , who ‘has particularly sound judgement, which helps achieve sensible and pragmatic resolutions to disputes’.
