Top 10 Trust Litigation barristers
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. 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 and their lawyers turn to when litigation arrives on their doorstep and a court case arrives or on the other side of the coin when families or entrepreneurs are no longer happy with their advice or service and mediation turns to litigation? Citywealth conducted a research programme over several months to create a Top 10 trust litigation barr ister list fit for purpose. Methodology: A survey was sent to 18,000 wealth managers and private client advisors to ask for submissions and also recommendations of litigators who had impressed them. Respondents were asked to answer a set of questions which included key cases they had worked on; cases that had impressed them and biographies to examine. The result is a consideration of the names submitted and their recommendations. It also involved editorial research to review key information and compare to produce the final list.
