Co-worker review:

Luke is an excellent lawyer and colleague. He consistently negotiates difficult issues with ease and explains complex and intricate matters in a clear and easily digestible fashion. Luke is approachable, dedicated and responsive – attributes which are greatly appreciated and respected by both his external and internal connections. I would have no hesitation in recommending Luke.

Peer review:

I met Luke Olivier in the frame of a very important and sensitive trust litigation before the High Court of Justice of Jersey. In the Mourant Ozannes' team, I have very much appreciated his professionalism, his dedication and the overall services rendered by Luke. His work was precise, quick and to the point. Besides, Luke has an international background which is important for cross-border and international matters. For those reasons, I fully recommend Luke.

Peer review:

I have had the pleasure of working with Luke Olivier over a number of years on several high-value and complex pieces of litigation in different jurisdictions. Luke is a most impressive litigator: he has a keen mind, strategic nous and a thoughtful and methodical approach. He also has a warm and approachable manner and is engaging with clients and other members of the team. Luke is particularly adept at sorting the wheat from the chaff, knowing that clients only expect to pay for the former, while keeping an eye on the big picture and the client’s objectives. A real team player who is not afraid of taking the lead, he is a joy to work for and with.

Recent cases include:

Luke Olivier, along with a team, represent the adult beneficiaries of two Jersey law governed trusts in connection with two applications issued before the Royal Court by a Swiss trustee.  The first application seeks the court's directions as to the identity of the trustee; the identity of the protector; the validity of certain steps taken by the protector to remove the trustee and to effect a change of proper law of the trust, and the future administration of the trust.  The second application seeks the court's directions as to the validity of the Trust, whether certain disclosures should be made to the revenue authorities of the beneficiaries' home jurisdiction, and the future administration of the trust generally.  The Mourant Ozannes legal team also represent, in connection with the first application, one of the potential protectors and the purportedly appointed new trustees.  In connection with the second application, we also act for one of the potential protectors and the settlor.  Serious allegations of misconduct have been levelled by the adult beneficiaries against the trustee bringing both applications.

This is an extremely complex and high value cross-border matter.  The combined asset value of the both trusts are in the region of €100 million. The Mourant Ozannes legal team represent the majority of convened parties before the court.  Unusually for administrative proceedings, because of the allegations of serious misconduct on the part of a trustee, this matter involves extensive live evidence and cross-examination.  The evidence, given over the course of nine days in the Royal Court, has recently concluded, with written closing submissions due to be filed shortly.
