Professional Biography

I have experience of assisting beneficiaries, trustees, and other fiduciaries with trust disputes both onshore and in numerous offshore jurisdictions. I also specialise in probate disputes, including when conflicts of private international law arise, and disputes overseen by the Court of Protection.
