Private Client Trusts and Probate

Serle Court is widely acknowledged as a leading set for both contentious and non-contentious trusts and probate work, both domestically and internationally. 

In England & Wales, the set has an extremely strong profile with members’ work encompassing trusts and probate litigation and advice, claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975 and charities work. In recent years barristers from Serle Court have appeared in many of the leading cases in these fields.

Chambers also has a pre-eminent reputation for offshore trusts litigation and related work.  Members of chambers act in significant cases across the Caribbean and in other jurisdictions including Bermuda, Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, Gibraltar, Lichtenstein, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Our clients include a wide range of City, West End, national and provincial firms of solicitors onshore and many leading offshore, domestic and foreign law firms in relation to our international work, as well as major institutional trustees.  Members are well used to working within multi-national, multi-jurisdictional and multi-disciplinary teams on large matters.

In 2017 Serle Court was awarded Chancery Set of the Year at the Chambers UK Bar Awards. The Legal 500 describes Serle Court as an “‘excellent set’. Members continue to be instructed in the most significant and high-profile cases, both onshore and offshore.”
