Edward advises UK and international clients in relation to a wide range of trust, pensions and other private wealth disputes, both domestic and those spanning multiple jurisdictions.

He acts for trustees and beneficiaries alike advising on breach of trust claims and the financial aspects of claims and settlements.  He is a core member of the pensions litigation team advising on construction and rectification issues as well as claims within pension schemes.  He also has landed estate experience dealing with a range of contentious issues involving trust structures and partition. Edward is recommended in Legal 500 2018 for being ‘wise beyond his years’.

Edward is admitted to practise England and Wales.
