Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

I have advised and appeared successfully as leading counsel on three significant Beddoe applications for the trustee of the Stingray Trust, two of which were hotly contested, and one of which involved the court granting a Beddoe Order retrospectively, which appears to have had no precedent in any reported case. The matter is a multi-jurisdictional cross-border matter with proceedings currently ongoing in three jurisdictions.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

This area of the law is as challenging as it is intellectually rewarding. You will have the opportunity to work among some of the brightest lawyers in the world both on the contentious side and on the advisory side. Embrace the opportunity, as success in this field will invariably be recognised as a major achievement.
