A leading set specialising in commercial, construction, insurance and property law


We deal with all aspects of trusts and trust of land disputes whether in a commercial or domestic context.

We handle disputes about the existence, construction and operation of trusts.  Our barristers also have expertise in claims related to constructive trusts, resulting trusts and proprietary estoppel relating to land and other capital assets. We appear in the courts and before the Adjudicator to HM Land Registry.  We have experience dealing with the practicalities of consequent orders for for accounts, sale and division of proceeds.

Our barristers bring legal expertise as well as practical and tactical know-how to all types of trust-related dispute. These may relate to a commercial or a family arrangement, involve off shore assets, a commercial joint venture or residential property. We recognise that commercial or personal factors may have a significant impact on trust of land disputes.

Our barristers are committed to considering all relevant forms of alternative dispute resolution at every stage of a case.
