Top Six Contentious Trust Lawyers

It doesn’t matter who you speak to, you’ll not hear a bad word about Anthony Poulton, who has built up a highly international practice based on exceptional
skill and competence – as well as an amiable personality.

Poulton’s clientele includes trustees, executors, protectors, beneficiaries and interested third parties. He’s known for handling work with a Middle East, Far East and Russia angle.

For instance, he acted for a Jersey-based trustee in a complex $500 million fraud claim which spanned jurisdictions including Russia, Kazakhstan, England, Jersey, Guernsey and the BVI. That’s rarefied work – particularly when you throw in an overseas criminal investigation, as well as various asset-tracing and corporate law aspects.

Poulton is currently acting for Grupo Torras SA in relation to the enforcement of an $800 million judgment over trust and personal assets in multiple jurisdictions following a fraud against the company by key management personnel. The settlement process has involved 17 parties and court orders in three jurisdictions.

Other well-regarded practitioners at the firm include Charles Thomson, as well as rising stars Gemma Willingham, Luke Richardson and Yindi Gesinde.
