Phoenix v Phoenix [2020] EWHC 1409 (Ch)

Date of Judgment: 18.06.20 | Court: Other | Area of Law: Private Client Trusts and Probate

Jonathan Fowles acted for the successful claimant in a claim to enforce a testamentary option. The case involved arguments about the construction of a will and whether in the circumstances all executors needed to be individually served with the relevant option notice. The case is also notable for its approach to an award of statutory interest.

The Deputy Master commented in his judgment that: “The skeleton arguments of both counsel were especially clear and helpful, and oral submissions focused and succinct.”
