International Trust Disputes19/01/12
Today saw the publication by Oxford University Press of International Trust Disputes, a new specialist guide for practitioners co-edited by one of Harcus Sinclair’s partners, Alison Meek.
International Trust Disputes provides a definitive guide to this complex area of law, covering the general trust principles as well as giving practical legal solutions in the main offshore jurisdictions. Trust disputes have become more prevalent in recent years and many involve offshore jurisdictions. Advising on these matters requires specialist skills and knowledge, as well as an in depth understanding of the creation and administration of private trusts. Harcus Sinclair has a wealth of experience in this area and is highly ranked in the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners for contentious trusts and probate. The firm boasts one of the largest dedicated contentious trust practices in London and the team is quoted in the Legal 500 as being of “high quality” and made up of “standout practitioners”.
Alison Meek is a partner in the litigation department and has been quoted in the Legal 500 as being “seriously brilliant” with a “razor-sharp mind” while Chambers & Partners note Alison’s “immense experience” of handling domestic and offshore trust and estate litigation claims. It is this combination which has led to Alison being involved as co-editor of International Trust Disputes with three other leading practitioners in this area, Sara Collins, Steven Kempster and Morven Mcmillan. The book provides a thorough and comprehensive guide to trust practice and the offshore jurisdictions in one comprehensive title.
Alison is also the joint author of A Practitioner's Guide to Contentious Trusts and Estates which was published by Tottel.
