The Citywealth Top 100 Trust Litigators
Citywealth conducted a research programme over several months to create a Top trust litigator list fit for purpose. One of the key questions asked was: who has impressed you most during current or past litigations? The answers have revealed a list of peer recommended litigators who have negotiated with the toughest opponents, through the hardest circumstances and with very little on their side but brains, lateral thinking and a will to win.
Their website says:
“As the world reels from Covid-19 and a world of litigation awaits us, the global sector has also experienced significant upheaval. Consolidation, private equity investment, changing business models and investment performance pressure from clients. The trust industry has also seen government and OECD oversight and asset tracing from professional parties like ‘family’ lawyers. So who do trustees turn to when litigation arrives on their doorstep or on the other side of the coin when families or entrepreneurs are no longer happy with their advice or service?”
Citywealth has a 15-year history of analysing the offshore market with strong relationships with trust companies in jurisdictions like Cayman, Bermuda, Zurich, Geneva, Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man. Through its independent editorial and decade long awards programmes (IFC Awards), our knowledge of the sector is second to none.
