We had an urgent situation with our family trust where we were getting no meaningful response from the existing trustees.

Edward is a very professional lawyer who puts his clients first. His knowledge of the law and the way he simplifies it into practical advice is extraordinary. A meeting with Edward is never boring as he always brings his own wit and charm.

Peer review:

When I require a leading trust lawyer Edward Bennett is my first port of call. In my experience Edward takes ownership of his clients problems, is very attentive, hands on, and provides pragmatic solutions. He is someone who genuinely cares about his clients and goes the extra mile when it comes to client service. Edward is always there for when you need him, and is everything you could want from a leading lawyer.
