I am a solicitor in the firm’s Dispute Resolution & Litigation team and am also a member of the Legacies, Trusts & Probate Disputes team.
I advise a variety of charitable and commercial clients on a range of contentious matters.
I act for a number of charities in relation to historic abuse claims, which include complex vicarious liability arguments, reputational and limitation issues.
I advised and acted for a major charity to recover significant sums which had been fraudulenty misappopriated after the IT system of a partner organisation was compromised and an email account was hacked. I helped the charity to report the incident and to recover the misappropriated funds whilst also advising on reputational and regulatory issues.
I advised a number of well known charities on the issue of whether funds that were held in a joint account should, following the death of one of the account holders, pass by survivorship to the remaining account holder or alternatively be held on resulting trust for the benefit of the estate, of which the charities were co-residual beneficiaries.
