Jonathan Fowles



Serle Court



Has a deft and practical touch.

Serle Court is a ‘top set with some rising stars on board.William Henderson ‘whose technical ability is second to none’ acted in the seminal case of Lehtimaki v Children’s Investment Fund Foundation. Here, the Court of Appeal reversed a previous decision when it held that the members owed the claimant some fiduciary duties. It also held that the court could not compel members of a charitable company about how to vote unless they were acting or threatening to act in breach of trust. According to one instructing solicitor, Jonathan Fowles was ‘instrumental‘ in bringing a complex international dispute to a close. ‘He understands the particular needs of charity clients and I would not hesitate to recommend him in contentious succession/probate matters.’
