Tax & Trusts

The law relating to tax and trusteeships is incredibly complex and from time to time, it is inevitable issues and arguments between one or more parties will arise. Disputes of this nature are often between family members and litigation through the court system is rarely the best option for a successful, mutually agreeable outcome.

Our highly-skilled team of mediators are experienced in handling detailed disputes, including those for high net worth individuals, both in England and Wales and also tax, trust and estate disputes that cross borders and involve multi-jurisdictions.
