We advise on complex, large-scale and often high-profile disputes in the UK and other jurisdictions.

We act for high net worth individuals, families, family offices, trustees, trust companies and charities. The work we undertake includes both onshore and offshore trust litigation, domestic and international probate disputes, as well as work in the Court of Protection.

The practice has earned an outstanding reputation and is led by Band 1 ranked James Price. The arrival of Geoff Kertesz adds further strength and depth to the team. 

In addition to conducting litigation in the UK, our lawyers coordinate claims in overseas jurisdictions, when necessary working alongside specialist law firms and non-legal professionals around the world. We also have a range of language skills including French, Italian, Spanish, Mandarin, Polish, and Russian.

We have unrivalled experience in putting together innovative costs arrangements. The use of third party funding, after-the-event insurance and risk-sharing fee agreements enables our clients to manage risk and litigate from a position of financial strength.

The department collaborates frequently with the firm’s highly experienced Divorce and Family, Tax Litigation, Commercial Litigation and Arbitration departments.
