In this year’s Private Client Global Elite guide to lawyers advising UHNW clients worldwide, partners James Price, Geoff Kertesz and Marcus Parker are listed in the top tier of their field. Emma Holland, Lucy Stewart-Gould and Jenny Duggan are also included in the Global Excellence category.

PCGE says: “The Private Client Global Elite Directory was created with the awareness that referrals and recommendations are absolutely key to the private client sector… rather than a listing of private client advisors as chosen by a third party, these are the excellent individuals as chosen by their own peers within the private wealth industry.”

Trust and Probate Litigation

Head of Trust and Probate Litigation James Price is listed once again for his work on contentious trusts and estates cases. PCGE recognises his often international work advising trustees, beneficiaries, protectors, family offices and other HNW individuals on international complex litigation.

Geoff Kertesz is also in the top tier for complex litigation relating to trusts and estates, often with an offshore element. He has experience involving the UK, US, Bermuda, Channel Islands, Cayman Islands, BVI and Hong Kong as well as purely domestic matters.

Marcus Parker is recognised for his more than 25 years of experience as both an English lawyer and a Cayman based professional trustee, “which gives a valuable and fairly unique perspective,” Marcus tells PCGE. “I manage complex and high value global disputes involving wealthy international families and their associated structures.”

Partner Emma Holland is also listed for her work on private wealth disputes concerning trusts and probate; the guide also acknowledges guardianship and mental capacity as top specialisms in her practice.

Divorce and Family

Lucy Stewart Gould, a partner in our Divorce and Family team, is again recognised for her work in dispute resolution and arbitration in family and matrimonial cases. “My focus is on multi-jurisdictional financial disputes; I also have particular experience in matrimonial disputes involving assets held in trust,” Lucy says.

Senior associate Jenny Duggan is acclaimed by PCGE for her “extensive experience in a wide range of high-value cases involving complex financial and trust structures, often with international elements.”
